Sometimes our animals need a little extra love and care. Just like how we may need some cheering up when we’re sick, our recuperating animals appreciate some extra attention too. Enrichment is more than just for fun, it can also be used to benefit animals in recovery.

The fish at the Aquarium enjoy enrichment, just like our other animals. And they can be quite good at the puzzle solving required by some enrichments, especially with the right motivation… food!
