STANDARDS OF CARE
HUMAN INMATE
TEMPERATURE

No temperate standards, use discretion
    

* Heat sensitive inmates will be relocated if the temperatures reaches or exceeds 85° F., if the temperature remains above 80° F for a period of time and maintenance is unable to resolve the issue within a reasonable amount of time, or if the air conditioning cannot be repaired that day. Any non-heat sensitive inmates will remain in the housing area.

CAPTIVE CHIMPANZEE

18 °C (55) °F to 28 °C (84 °F)

Individuals should be allowed access to heated areas when the temperature drops below 10°C (50°F).

The upper limits of temperatures that chimpanzees can tolerate are less well defined, but 29°C (85°F) does not appear to be detrimental to chimpanzees providing there is an adequate flow of fresh air.

 

*AZA institutions with exhibits which rely on climate control must have critical life-support systems for the animal collection and emergency backup systems available. All mechanical equipment should be under a preventative maintenance program as evidenced through a record-keeping system.

CAPTIVE CHIMPANZEE

All of the techniques behind positive reinforcement training lead back to one basic principle: the frequency of a desired behavior can be increased by positively reinforcing the occurrence of that behavior.

ENRICHMENT
HUMAN INMATE
CAPTIVE CHIMPANZEE

Social, occupational, physical, sensory and nutritional enrichment.

 

Animals that may have the highest priority for enrichment are those in quarantine situations, animals that are separated from conspecifics for medical management, animals that are preparing for transfer to other institutions, and groups that are changed for breeding purposes.
