HOLIDAY ENRICHMENT WORKSHOP

Join the Toronto Zoo Animal Enrichment Elf workshop this holiday season! Have you ever wanted to create a personalized gift for one of your favourite animals? Come experience how our expert team creates engaging and interactive enrichment for our animals and learn the science behind it. Learn about all five categories of enrichment (sensory, environmental, forage/feeding, occupational and play) while you create an enrichment gift for our animals. Whether it’s helping us paint paper mache for our Meerkat gang or weaving firehose feeders for our caribou, there are a number of animals on Santa’s “nice” list that need something under the tree this holiday season.

Finish this encounter off with a tour of our Wildlife Nutrition Centre, where all of our animals’ holiday treats are prepared.
