At-Home Animal Enrichment
By providing Cosley Zoo’s animals with enrichment, we are encouraging them to exhibit choice and control in their environment, participate in physical activity, and exhibit natural behaviors. Enrichment is a crucial component of Cosley Zoo’s animal wellness program and is just as important to an animal’s health as the proper diet or veterinary care.
Just as the zoo’s animals benefit from enrichment, so will your own pets at home! Before giving any enrichment item to your animal, make sure it is safe (having no loose parts that can come off and be swallowed, for example) and always supervise the animal while it interacts with the enrichment. The links below contain some ideas for enriching your pets. Use them as a starting point and put your creativity to work to make your pet’s day!
