Fishpops and bloodsicles are just the beginning of what we offer our animals to help them mimic natural behaviors in a built environment. Join Zoo educators and animal staff for a quick lesson on animal care at the Zoo and an opportunity to participate in one of the most varied aspects of animal care: enrichment. Here at the Zoo, our keepers work every day to make sure that our animals are happy and healthy in our care. A large part of that work is designing enrichment for each of our animal ambassadors that will help keep their minds and bodies active and engaged. This program is designed for participants aged 15 and up and will have a maximum of 20 participants.

Join us for a private animal experience in our Snow Leopard Cub House and learn about our animal ambassador program as you meet some of the animals that help us connect with guests of all ages! As a part of the program, your group will learn how our keepers care for our animals and will create an enrichment experience for one of our ambassadors. Each small animal meet-and-greet includes a 30-minute encounter and 30-minute free play in the Cubhouse. This program is ideal for groups or families with young children. Maximum group size is 6 individuals per session.
