25th January 2020 – Excellent Enrichment 

This month we will be concentrating on excellent enrichment. We will make some reusable enrichment for our mammal keepers to keep and use again and again, as well as having a go at our quick enrichment challenge. Even our most unusual, scaly or feathery residents enjoy receiving enrichment. 

For administration purposes booking will close at noon on Friday 13th October 2019.
