Support the animals in our care

ZooParent program funds are used by the animal care team to purchase enrichment items or materials that encourage mental and physical stimulation.

What is enrichment and why is it important?

Enrichment gives animals opportunities to express natural behaviors, preserving and challenging the instincts and adaptations unique to each species. It enhances the well-being of the animals and is as essential to animal welfare as nutrition and excellent veterinary care. Enrichment items are as varied as the species who use them. From puzzle feeders and perfume, to plastic buckets and piñatas, every item is chosen for the unique needs of each animal.
