Holiday Enrichment at the Zoo

Everyone enjoys gifts, and the BioPark Zoo animals are no exception! Many of the zoo's animals will receive holiday treats during this special event.
Curators and keepers at the zoo will give holiday enrichment to the primates, cats and elephants-- paper chains, decorated tubes, edible goodies and boxes wrapped in holiday style. Special enrichment keeps zoo animals active, alert and curious.
Come see how the animals interact with their presents, toys and goodies. You may catch a zookeeper at enrichment locations-they will be available during parts of the morning to answer questions and explain the importance of enrichment for the animals.
