Welcome to SHAPE—Brasil

Our Brasil is like this...

great, for its extension,

welcoming, for its people, and

simply charming for its exuberant nature.


Shape—Brasil is a regional division of The Shape of Enrichment, Inc. that is dedicated to encouraging the use of enrichment techniques for zoo, lab, farm, and companion animals, to enhance their quality of life and welfare.

In order to do that, we intend to offer Brasilian people opportunities for an improvement in their theoretical and practical knowledge of environmental enrichment.
