Congratulations to Sheila Wojciechowski, a keeper in the Tropic World exhibit at the Brookfield Zoo, who was the winner of The Shape of Enrichment $1,000 travel grant to the 5th International Conference on Environmental Enrichment, in November 2001 in Sydney Australia. Sheila's paper, "Is Enrichment Still Good the Next Day? Overcoming the Challenges of Providing Daily Enrichment to Multiple Animal Groups in a Colony-Type Situation" assessed the effectiveness of 19 items being given to 8 groups of Goeldi's monkeys (Callimico goeldii) and evaluated if keeper time was being used optimally to provide the greatest amount of enrichment for the animals.
