From leaping to swimming to jumping, animals are capable of incredible athletic skills. Guests can learn more about these abilities and find out how they compare. Enrichment plays a key role in our animal care program, and can be offered in a variety of different ways. Zookeepers use novelty foods, sounds, smells, boxes, bags, and toys to provide activities that excite all the senses. Environmental enrichment encourages animals to use their natural abilities and behaviors to interact with their environment.
