Do circadian rhythms impact animal welfare in zoos?

Circadian rhythms dictate the timing of behaviours and physiological processes; optimizing energy efficiency, synchronizing social behaviours, and enhancing overall health. Circadian rhythmicity may be disrupted in a zoo environment as a consequence of light pollution, husbandry practices, and latitudinal seasonality. In my talk I discuss the potential causes and effects of disruption to circadian rhythms in a zoo and how these issues could possibly be addressed.
