Everywhere you turn right now, there’s another employee out with an animal. We have people giving animal demonstrations up at the park entrance and throughout the zoo. There are programs going on and enrichment activities for some of our larger animals. Yesterday the bears got to rip up a paper mache bee hive out of the tree that was filled with honey! There will be pictures coming soon of that.
The season is getting busier as there are also new faces at the zoo. We are still in the middle of training some new people on how to work with all of our animals here. When we’re not training new employees or working on our new exhibits, we’ve been busy with animal enrichment. I’ll be posting a series of pictures of some of our animals enjoying their special activities…check back soon!
