We all need our lives enriched – seeing a movie on Friday night, going to a playground, eating at your favorite restaurant. Going through the same motions day after day wears on everyone, and everything. Variety is the spice of life, as the saying goes - especially if you live in a zoo! So, zookeepers regularly develop creative ways to enrich the lives of the animals in their care. The “toys” that they create keep the animals active and engaged, which makes them healthier.
Your home pet could benefit from enrichment, too. Come out to the Animal Forest at Charles Towne Landing and see what toys our animals enjoy, and maybe even leave with some ideas that will enrich the life of your “best friend.”
