2015 Animal Enrichment Holiday Wish List

Gift-giving is for the birds!  … and the apes … and the bears …










The Zoo’s Animal Enrichment Program provides animals with opportunities to express natural behaviors, such as foraging, exploring, playing, or simply resting comfortably. We accomplish this by providing variety within our animals’ environments each day – offering new food items, objects and toys, nest materials and novel scents. This includes all kinds of items for busy paws, tails, beaks, mouths and noses.

You can drop off your new animal “toy” at the Guest Relations/Member Services office near the Zoo’s ticket booth. Thank you for including the Fort Worth Zoo’s animals in your holiday season!
