Join us this holiday season for this much-loved annual event as our animals get to participate in their very own seasonal celebration with the Zoo's Holiday Animal Enrichment Days. This is a fun way to learn about the importance of our Zoo's enrichment program while watching our animals enjoy festive treats!

What is enrichment? Enrichment is a way for us to provide experiences for the animals and help mimic their natural behaviour with benefits to their health and welfare. These experiences can include the use of various food, puzzle feeders and unique scents as well as some items purchased from our annual Enrichment Giving Tree
