This event is all about enrichment! We will have enrichment for our visitors to so they can learn first hand how we keep our animals happy and healthy. Visitors will also be able to view animals interacting with enrichment and even help build some enrichment for certain species.
Curious what enrichment is? Enrichment is used to provide mental and physical stimulation and to promote natural behaviors. It can take many forms including:
- sensory (unfamiliar smells, sounds, or textures)
- foods (new foods, foraging enrichment, puzzle feeders, etc)
- environmental (new items added to habitat such as climbing structures, swings, hiding areas, etc)
- toys (boxes, balls, and other non-food items to encourage exploration and/or play)
