The Emperor Valley Zoo's Animal Enrichment Project is geared towards enhancing the lives of our captive animals. Its aim is to keep the animals occupied mentally and physically so that stereotypical behaviour is avoided. The project commenced in April 2009 and is ongoing. Materials are donated, some are bought and others are items that can be gathered around the compound e.g. boxes and shredded paper. The animals are given enrichment items according to a pre-planned schedule. Their behaviours are observed, assessed and changes made for subsequent enrichment exercises. Here are some of our animals with their enrichment items!
