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.

A video recording will be sent to you that will allow your students to analyze if the enrichment was a success.
