Holiday Gifts for the Animals

Lion with a Present

Our animals will be getting into the seasonal fun with “presents” of their own, which are part of our enrichment program. Enrichment activities are offered throughout the year and promote the physical and mental wellbeing of our animal residents by encouraging natural behaviors. During Reindeer Romp, see your favorite animals enjoy special enrichment treats on weekend days. Schedule to come.
