More About Animal Enrichment

Enrichment is a process that ensures the behavioral and physical needs of an animal are being met by providing opportunities for species-appropriate behaviors and choices. Enrichment is a major component of the superior care all of the animals receive at the Saint Louis Zoo. Enrichment is not any one singular thing, but rather a combination of many things that enhance the lives of all the animals you see at the Zoo. Enrichment can come in the form of activities, dynamic habitats, new experiences or even food items presented in challenging or novel ways. We have a team of animal care experts who plan enrichment activities for the animals throughout the year.
