Enrichment All Year Round
Your generosity means that we have new toys and treats for the animals that lasts us for half the year.
All the gifts are incorporated into our enrichment plans for the resident animals. Enrichment is used to enhance the lives of our animals by stimulating natural behaviors and providing novelty and appropriate choices on a daily basis.
Enrichment prevents boredom and alleviates stress, it also provides fun for animals, staff, volunteers and visitors alike.
Below is a list of suggested items to donate and many items that animals like to play with.
From lions trying to figure out what that unusual scent is, or chimps “fishing” for pudding; animals enjoy this enrichment year round.
