Cristiane Schilbach Pizzutto


Positions: Core Group, Shape—Brasil Coordinator


I am Cristiane Schilbach Pizzutto, veterinarian, graduate and post-graduate of the College of Veterinary Medicine of the University of São Paulo (FMVZ-USP). Currently I am getting my post-doctoral degree in the Animal Reproduction Department of FMVZ-USP.


I started to work with enrichment in 1997 with the attempt to help one of the two existing gorillas in Brasil. Since then I have not been able to stop. In 1999, I had the opportunity to participate in the 4th ICEE and attain more knowledge in that area. I started planting the idea of environmental enrichment in Brasil through seminars and courses and encouraging professionals to look at caged animals a little more with their hearts. It was a volunteer job, hard and tiring, but one that I always believed in.


My dream was realized when I was able to obtain my doctoral degree with a thesis in environmental enrichment. Today, I work with environmental enrichment in my post-doctoral work, with the support of the Animal Reproduction Department, where the number of research projects associated with environmental enrichment – endocrinology – animal wellbeing grows.


Today, I am very proud of being the Shape—Brasil Coordinator. With the other members, I will strive for the improvement of professionals involved in this area. The success of our first REEC was our first conquest.
