#GivingZOOday is about the impact zoos and aquariums have on their communities by engaging visitors to be stewards of the environment and save species from extinction. It’s also about how these institutions give back by mentoring their staff and volunteers to support a wide range of causes.
This year, Fresno Chaffee Zoo invites the community to give directly to the animals through enrichment! Enrichment earned its name because it enriches lives! It can come in many forms, from puzzle feeders to plastic balls to perfume. It’s used not only to keep the animals active as they play with their toys, but to stimulate their minds while they problem solve. It even entices them to use their natural behaviors by re-creating aspects of their wild instincts!
