Animal enrichment within a zoo is a way for keepers to encourage and stimulate natural behaviors in our animals through sight, smell, taste, touch, and interaction. In a zoo setting, it is as important to provide mentally and physically-enriching activities for the animals as it is to provide nutritious, well-balanced diets.

The following are animal enrichment devices that I have personally designed and built to be used by the Cincinnati Zoo & Botanical Garden. Enjoy!
