Resumo

Wild Animal Sorting Centers (WASC) keeps animals that were captured from their natural habitat. These animals often suffer stress and may show atypical behavior due the difficulty encountered by them to adapt to captivity. In order to improve the quality of life of these animals was developed this work, in order to study the behavior of coatis subjected to different procedures of environmental enrichment. The study was conducted in WASC of Federal University of Visa, Visa-MG. Data were collected from the observation of two coatis submitted to four different procedures for environmental enrichment. The interaction with the objects of coatis enrichment was effective, stimulating behavioral changes in animals, demonstrating the success of the procedures applied
