The History of SHAPE-Sweden
group started as an environmental enrichment group in the Swedish Zoo
Association in 2005 out of Linda Askelund and Stefan Jonsson. In 2007 the group was expanded with two people:
Kenneth Ekvall and My Wadström.
started an email list with now over 110 recipients who spread information about
Environmental Enrichment, however, since 2011 we also
use an Facebook page for this purpose as well.
2008 a written guidance in environmental enrichment was developed for zoo
staffs, students, supervisors and managers.
we merged with The Shape of Enrichment as a Shape-Regional, Shape Sweden!
now, in 2011, we started out this website with our editor, Gülfidan
Kulbay, who manages the website.
committee members have participated in the international Conferences on Environmental Enrichment since 2001.
