Enriching Science

Enrichment is a part of daily animal healthcare at Zoo Miami.  It brings out an animal’s natural behaviors through physical and mental exercises, such as bears having to roll a barrel to get the food out to forage.  In this program, create an enrichment for one of Zoo Miami’s animal ambassadors under the guidance of one of our Educators.  A video recording will be sent to you that will allow your students to analyze if the enrichment was a success.

Recommended age group: 4th-12 grade
