Enrichment is a very important component of the care we provide to our animals. Enrichment involves using tools and activities to physically and mentally stimulate our animals and encourage natural behaviours similar to that in their wild habitat. Our keepers have chosen a brilliant selection of enrichment items that are available for you to purchase from our Wishlist. Any purchase is a huge help.
To see the list and send us a gift click here. Please select the postal address that states ‘Paignton Zoo Animal Enrichment’ to ensure that the donation goes to the right place! Our friends at Amazon will then deliver that item directly to us.
