Enrichment Experience

Keeping the animals in our care engaged and active




Add a 30-Minute Treat to Our Endangered Species Tour

Tossing a tennis ball with your family dog does more than build a bond. Their intelligence stays sharp and his senses alert through stimulation, problem-solving, walks filled with scents to explore and, of course, the universal language of play. Our Enrichment Experience gives visitors the rare opportunity to help provide the animals in our care with a similar kind of exercise and stimulation.

Tour Highlights

Treats, no tricks

Participants watch up-close as members of our Animal Care team toss bones, ice blocks packed with rewards inside and various scented objects into the habitats of one of our species for them to investigate and explore, encouraging these natural behaviors.

Why enrichment is important

Since they don’t have miles of territory to hunt and patrol like they would in the wild, such enrichment opportunities are an important part of their care and well-being.

Add-on to an Endangered Species Tour

This program is usually purchased as an add-on experience and does not include a tour of the rest of our animals. For that we recommend our signature Endangered Species Tour
