What is enrichment?

Enrichment is a vital component of superior animal care at accredited zoological organizations, and Zoo Atlanta has a robust enrichment program in place year-round for all species. Animal enrichment, which may take the form of objects, foods, scents, feeder puzzles and more, stimulates’ animals’ natural behaviors and adaptations while promoting their well-being. Gorilla Egg Hunts and More is one of many opportunities for visitors to see enrichment in action.
