Animal Care Score

Animal Care Score

An objective scientific assessment of the care wild animals receive in captive environments

This oversight assessment of animal care provides feedback to the owners of these facilities and their management, on the level of care they offer their animals

The assessment provides the tourist a guide or indicator on the standard of a facility and their care for their animals

There is currently no scientific assessment for facilities keeping wild animals in captivity. There is no general standard for these facilities and there is no general standard set for regulatory authorities, other than the standards set by legislation.

Standards set by legislation are very broad and focus on sizes of facilities and neglect behaviour and expertise required, and a number of other parameters that should be assessed and impact on animal care.
