Animal Enrichment Day
Thank you for making this a huge hit!
From zoo animals to our pets at home and even including us, we all need enrichment. A chance to smell a new scent. Taste a new flavor. Play a new game or figure out a puzzle. Enrichment is an effort to tap into and stimulate our basic five senses: touch, sight, smell, taste and hearing. The result is to stimulate behaviors resembling those for that species in the wild. It is a lot of trial and error, but it is always fun.
