AnimalConcepts welcomes May with new exciting topics in all platforms!
This month on the animal wellbeing platform is all about nutrition. Nutrition is crucial in captive animal facilities, such as zoos, aquariums, and wildlife sanctuaries, as it directly impacts the health, behaviour, and welfare of the animals. We will explore nutritional needs of different species and how this impacts their wellbeing, we will also investigate feeding enrichment, as well as a holistic and sustainable approach to animal nutrition in captive environments. You can download HERE a list of freely available resources created in 2022 on this topic.
Our focus for May in the space of human wellbeing is “Real love in the workplace”. Every human being has a primal need for love, but most of us fail to realise that this need continues into the workplace. Learn more this month about the eight principles for consistently effective leadership grounded in kindness and care. You can read HERE an inspiring blog post by Sabrina Brando on love, care and respect in the workplace.
May’s topic on the planetary wellbeing platform is “Food relations”. Our global food systems are integral to human societies and are interwoven with planetary systems such as soil health, water quality, and global emissions, as well as social systems including social and economic justice. It is important to develop food systems that are sustainable and promote both human and planetary well-being. This requires a holistic approach that considers the social, economic, and environmental impacts of food production and consumption.
