Animal Husbandry and Wildlife Conservation

ZLI believes that the Sciences of Light and Life benefit when ex-situ research (study of an animal hosted in a zoo or aquarium for example) is pursued in conjunction with in-situ research (study of animals and their habitats in the wild for example).

Animal husbandry is improved through greater understanding of an animal’s habitat, and wildlife conservation is much more effective through close study of individuals. ZLI gathers research and current best practices in husbandry, conservation and science regarding light and life so that they can be improved upon. Although the resources below represent only a tiny fraction of available papers, they are intended to provide a starting point in the realm of Applied Photobiology for better animal care and conservation.
