Why is enrichment necessary?
Helping animals to exercise their minds is essential to their well-being. It is just as important as proper nutrition and routine veterinary care. Creative outlets for physical and mental stimulation include different forms of play, food, objects, sounds, smells, and structures.
The Zoo offers its animals a variety of items that encourage natural behaviors, such as digging, foraging, or hunting.
You can help us provide engaging opportunities for our animals by donating enrichment items from our Amazon Wish List:
