  • Train Teaser

  • Animal Enrichment Activities
    Our animals are joining in the Egg Day fun too, as they enjoy Easter-related enrichment items in their exhibits.  Enrichment keeps the animals active and healthy, allowing them to express behaviors similar to those they would in the wild.
    Amur tigers, orangutans and rhinos are a few of the animals receiving these special treats.
