CONSERVATION CONNECTION:
Enrichment is a process involving the introduction of stimuli to promote natural behaviours of animals in a captive setting and enhance welfare. The Toronto Zoo's Behavioural Husbandry Team has been working to provide animals with choice and control over their environments. This is achieved by introducing various enrichment options on a daily basis. The program is constantly developing new techniques to introduce to animals across the park, giving them a wide variety of activities to enhance their lives each week.
Have you ever thought "there is garbage in the exhibit" or "there is something in the tree", there are common misconceptions made by the public regarding enrichment. The Toronto Zoo keepers reuse and recycle products to responsibly enrich the lives of the animals.
