    Have you ever wondered why some of the animals have balls, spinner toys and other items in their exhibits? This is called enrichment and it is an important part of caring for the animals at the zoo. Enrichment can be offered in a variety of different ways and zookeepers use novelty foods, sounds, smells, boxes, bags, and toys to provide activities that excite all the senses. Environmental enrichment encourages animals to use their natural abilities and behaviors to interact with their environment.

    Visit Franklin Park Zoo on July 26 and discover why enrichment is so important. Throughout the day, guests will have the opportunity to see many of the animals receive enrichment items made especially for them.
