    Hi,

    So I study Animal Management at university and I'm going into my third year and I have absolutely NO IDEA what to do for my dissertation and was basically just wondering if anyone had any ideas or thoughts on what I could do?!

    I got as far as deciding I wanted to do a behavioural based study but that's it.

    HELP!

    Thanks :)

    How about choosing two related but different species and looking at similarities and differences in their maintenance, public perception and welfare? African and Asian lions might be a good example. You would have the pride/ pair dimension, public perception, conservation value, stud book issues and a wide range of different UK enclosures to look at.
