It is essential to great apes' physical and mental well-being that they are kept engaged and stimulated. There are several types of enrichment that we utilize; sensory, food-based, manipulative, environmental, and behavioral-social. Each type of enrichment encourages our residents to overcome challenges and to solve problems that would be natural to them.

Now through the end of August, we will be fundraising for new enrichment devices for our new areas and chimpanzee residents as well as some familiar orangutan faces. Our goal is to raise $5,000 for a variety of extra durable, “ape-proof” toys and feeders specifically requested by our ape care staff. We are asking our members, supporters, and fans to help sponsor these enrichment items! As a sponsor, you may donate as little as $5 or as much as the total cost of the item. 

Help us help them during our Ape-tastic Summertime Fun Enrichment Campaign!
