Research priorities

We work closely with the animal keeping teams to facilitate data collection that will benefit the health, behaviour and overall well-being of species within our and other zoological collections. Topics of current interest include, but are not limited to;

Social Network Analysis/Sociality

Personality Traits

Time & Activity Budgets

Enclosure Use


Native Species Monitoring

We also welcome data collection from researchers in the fields of education, business and tourism covering a range of topics from guest engagement through to novel uses of technology, evaluation, sustainability and communication – the list is endless!

Multi-institutional projects with support from the BIAZA Research Committee are more likely to be accepted – more information as to the benefits and how to apply can be found here.
