Indicators of the Wellbeing of Orcas

Is it possible to measure the wellbeing of animals? Loro Parque Fundación collaborates with the Autonomous University of Barcelona (UAB) in a study that expects to identify and validate indicators of the wellbeing of Orcas, so that this serves as an objective tool for institutions such as Loro Parque. Dr. Oriol Talló, researcher of the Faculty of Veterinary Medicine of the UAB, was here last week in order to collect samples and exchange knowledge and impressions with both the staff and the keepers.

Beh se la cattività ha come lo scopo la conservazione e l'approfondimento della loro biologia ha una valenza un po' diversa da quella fine a sé stessa. Chiaramente i cetacei sono tra quegli organismi che per condizioni ambientali richieste probabilmente mal sia adattano a una sana vita in cattività; l'ultima parola però a chi li conosce bene.

Y la universidad da más credibilidad jejeje,nada nada les faltan dos universidades más y luego el saludo de Cousteau,,,ese si sería superior,

Ets un crack Oriol Talló Parra

In the branch of the Max Planck Institute located at Loro Parque, researchers are working together with Loro Parque Foundation on different projects aimed at studying the intelligence of birds.

This time, they have shown us an experiment which helps to demonstrate how basic aspects of cognition, in this case related to numbers, exist not only in us, humans, but also in the animals that are so different from us.

The image that sums up what we're doing to our oceans

Heartbreaking ☹️

The image that sums up what we're doing to our oceans
Shocking images have captured a Caribbean island’s clear blue seas being choked by a tide of plastic rubbish. Taken off the Honduran island of Roatan, the pictures show plastic cutlery, bags, bottles and wrapping floating among seaweed.
