This enrichment manual is a compilation of the different environmental enrichment items used at the Biomedical Primate Research Centre (BPRC) in Rijswijk, The Netherlands. At the BPRC, we keep long-tailed macaques (Macaca fascicularis), rhesus macaques (Macaca mulatta) and common marmosets (Callithrix jacchus).

The fundamental premise taken throughout each chapter is that for an enrichment program to be effec- tive, there must be a basic understanding of the biology and behavior of the primate species.

The species addressed in this series are: baboons, capuchins, chimpanzees, macaques, marmosets and tamarins, and squirrel monkeys. The XBI is designed as a device for training and behavioral testing of rhesus macaques in their housing environment, and can also be used for environmental enrichment.

It has been developed with five design requirements in mind. Kong toys as enrichment devices for singly-caged macaques. Laboratory Primate Newsletter 28(2): Crockett, C.

American Journal of Primatology 52(2. Eight single-caged adult rhesus macaques were given the choice of freely collecting their standard food ration, i.e. 33 biscuits, from an ordinary food box or working for its retrieval from a custom-made food puzzle.

During a one-hour observation session following the simultaneous distribution of biscuits in both feeders, individuals spent on average a total of 32 sec retrieving biscuits. The purpose of this research was to monitor the behavioural and physiological responses of adult female rhesus macaques to a simple enrichment device.

The apparatus consisted of a box attached to the monkey's home cage that contained a radio and a food dispenser, which could be controlled by the monkeys via contact detectors.

These weaned rhesus macaques are provided with a variety of types of environmental enrichment. For example, they are housed in social groups, have access to fixed climbing structures made of wood and suspended tyre swings, and there is food scattered around the enclosure and in the floor substrate to encourage foraging behaviour.

The practicability of social enrichment for singly caged adult rhesus monkeys was examined. Twenty-nine weaned rhesus monkey infants were removed from breeding troops to avoid overcrowding and were placed with unfamiliar singly caged adults.

Animal Welfare Institute, Washington, D.C. The behavior of peer‐reared infant rhesus macaques raised in enriched and nonenriched housing conditions was examined in order to evaluate the utility and effectiveness of object enrichment in a group housing setting.

Environmental enrichment consisted of apparatuses designed to promote motor activity and to provide response‐contingent feedback.

Four animals in each condition were tested. additional enrichment distribution each week, access to larger cage space when available). Environmental Enrichment: All nonhuman primates must be provided with environmental enrichment opportunities falling within one or more of the following enrichment categories: feeding, physical, sensory and occupational.
