Keepers, curators and volunteers plan animal enrichment activities for Zoo animals throughout the year. Enrichment makes life more interesting for the animals. They are encouraged to forage for food, invent “toys” out of everyday items, explore with new exhibit “furniture” such as logs and vines, or even sniff new scents. Enrichment activities are fun for the animals, the visitors and the keepers.
