Animalympics Enrichment at Stone Zoo on July 23
STONEHAM – The animals at Stone Zoo will be getting into the Olympic spirit on July 23! In celebration of the upcoming Olympic Games, many of the animals will receive sports-inspired enrichment. Visitors will also be able to watch the animals enjoy treats made especially for them.
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.
