For this year's Moon Jam, briefs were supplied by colleagues at North Carolina Zoo, Greensboro Science Centre and London Zoo as well as by our co-organisers, Rob Kelly and Paige Bwye.
- Heinz the Armadillo - Foraging enrichment challenge supplied by Robert Kelly, University of Exeter.
- Vampire Bats - Feeding enrichment challenge supplied by Emily Lynch and Eric Mahan from North Carolina Zoo.
- Living Coral - Environmental enrichment challenge supplied by Lindsey Zarecky and Jessica Hoffman at Greensboro Science Centre, North Carolina.
- Noah the Aye-aye - Foraging and dental health challenge supplied by Paige Bwye, University of Central Queensland, Australia.
- Pottos v. Bushbabies - Mixed exhibit feeding challenge supplied by Laura Carrigan, London Zoo.
- Stop the Flashes - Associated with unwanted visitor behaviour and also supplied by Emily and Eric from NC Zoo, this was treated as a separate challenge as it relates to many nocturnal exhibits in zoos.
- Fresh Air - Relates to effects of the day-night cycle reversal experienced by some nocturnal animals, a challenge raised by our co-organiser, Jon Coe.
Everyone discussed all the challenges, then small teams formed to develop ideas during the afternoon. Rob, Paige and Lorna from London Zoo were able to connect remotely to the workshop and offer their feedback on concepts, while Eric and Emily from North Carolina Zoo attended in person and moved around the tables to offer support and advice.
Overviews of the outputs are shown below, with links to more detailed descriptions of the challenges and notes from the teams to follow.
