Concept best practice guidelines for the trumpeters (Psophiidae)

Concept best practice guidelines for the trumpeters (Psophiidae)

Samenvatting

The conservation status of the trumpeter species varies from least concern to critically endangered according to the IUCN since 2014. The conservation statuses are based on future deforestation in the Amazon basin and on the fact that the species is vulnerable to being hunted. It is concluded that the populations will decline very rapidly over the next three generations. The trumpeter species that is kept in captivity is the grey-winged trumpeter. The captive trumpeters are monitored in Europe by EAZA. Trumpeters are difficult to keep and breed in captivity, therefore there is a strong need for Best Practice Guidelines (BPG) to assist zoos in creating optimal conditions for these species.The goal of this research is to have an overview of trumpeter holder opinions on best practice in housing and husbandry, as well as biology and conservation status/field data written in the framework of the EAZA Best Practice Guidelines.
