Positive Response Training with lemurs

Here we show some examples from our Positive Reinforcement Training (PRT ,- sometimes called clicker-training)with our group of 6 adult ringtailed lemurs and 1 young baby-lemur.

The training is for the wellbeing of the animals that have to live in captivity:

1. Physical exercises enhancing the physical constitution of the animals

2. Psychological stimulation by solving problems

3. Cooperation for husbanding and medical analysis makes the husbanding easier for carers and the animals, produces less stress on them
