3d September- 4th
September 2012 at Skansen Zoo, Stockholm, Sweden
The Swedish Association
of Zoos and Aquariums and The Shape of Enrichment Sweden invite you to
participate at SAZA's fifth and Shape—Sweden’s first environmental
SAZA´s environmental enrichment group has since long quest also reformatted to
a regional group within the international organization “The Shape of Enrichment
Inc.”, founded in 1991.
This is a unique opportunity and it is with tremendous pride that we present Valerie J. Hare as the champion of this
conference! Valerie J. Hare is a founding member of The Shape of Enrichment
Inc. and has since 1991, devotedly worked to spread the organization's purpose.
As both environmental enrichment consultant, workshop coordinator, and lecturer
in the subject on international and regional conferences she possesses
invaluable knowledge and experience.
The 2012 years conference will be held in “Skanska Gruvan” at Skansen Zoo in Stockholm and will run
from noon Monday, 3d of September and ends in the late afternoon on
Tuesday 4th of September. The conference begins with a lecture on
the basics of enrichment, but will mostly consist of lectures that take us
deeper into the subject. Some preparation and knowledge is desirable, for
example by reading the SAZA´s guidance in environmental enrichment. (Can be ordered
from Linda Askelund, Skansen Zoo)
Accommodation: Each participant will
have the opportunity to choose their own accommodations during the two
conference days. However, we have a limited number of rooms booked on
"Nora Boden" at Skansen and “Hasselbacken”, neighbor to Skansen. The

cheap hotels and hostels in Stockholm. We are happy to help you to coordinate
accommodation during the conference if you find obstacles in their path.
