Enrichment is activity and opportunities for Toledo Zoo animals that encourage natural behaviors.
For example, having the opportunity to forage for food tucked into a toy promotes behavior that would be similar to animals in the wild, versus simply placing the food in front of the animal at meal times. Simply put, enrichment is a large part of the animal version of a wellness program.
On Saturday, September 23, from 10 a.m. – 3 p.m., the Zoo offers Enrichment Day: Play the Animal Way for visitors to see these efforts and more in action!
All activities are included with Zoo admission. The full schedule of Enrichment Day: Play the Animal Way activities is available here.
