Welcome to SHAPE—South and East Europe (SHAPE—SEE)!


SHAPE—SEE is a regional division of The Shape of Enrichment, Inc.



Our mission is to bring together people who work in zoos in different capacities and who are interested in promoting environmental enrichment and working to enrich the lives of captive animals. We will support each other by sharing ideas to implement and advance enrichment efforts in this region.

Andras Kopacz founded SHAPE—SEE in 2009. Currently, there are four members on our steering committee, two from Romania and two from Hungary. However, additional members, especially from unrepresented countries in the region, are welcome. If you are interested, please contact us.
