The unenclosed upland areas of the UK are internationally important for wildlife and of high nature conservation value. However, these fragile habitats are subject to various threats including the impacts of climate change, atmospheric pollution deposition, acid rain and grazing pressures.
  Does cognitive stimulation reduce behavioural and neural measures of ‘boredom’ in laboratory ferrets?
  Dr C Burn, Dr M Diez Leon, Prof J Bizley
Application Deadline: 10 February 2019
Discovering whether animals show signs consistent with boredom when cognitive stimulation is relatively low is important, because of its implications for captive animal welfare and their needs for mental stimulation.
