The Shape/AAZK Enrichment and Training Video Library 


The Shape of Enrichment, Inc., in conjunction with the American Association of Zoo Keepers, operates an enrichment and training video library. This library consists of videotapes donated in the interest of sharing enrichment and training techniques.


All videos are available in VHS-NTSC, VHS-PAL, or SECAM format. Conversion to these formats was funded by a generous grant from The Universities Federation for Animal Welfare (UFAW). Many of the videos are now available in digital format as well.


The videos are available for loan, free of charge other than the return postage fee. At this time, there are 4 video libraries in operation.
