Happy Zoo Year!

Sunday, January 14, 2018

Watch the animal collection "unwrap" their enrichment gifts! Visit several animal exhibits throughout the afternoon to see in person how Zoo staff keep the animal collection active and healthy.

What is Animal Enrichment?
In the wild animals have to work to find food and shelter. Play is another natural and important activity. At the Zoo, life can become a bit more predictable. We utilize enrichment daily to stimulate these natural behaviors, creating an environment that challenges our animals in work and play.
