Evenings with an Educator: Animal Training and Enrichment

Syracuse Zoo RGZ Asian Elephant Ajay Enrichment

For Adults Only; Ages 18 and up!

Join us as we explore the creative ways our animal staff works to ensure the species in our care remain healthy in mind and body in this interactive lecture-style program. Animal enrichment is a regular part of the lives of animals here at the zoo. Each species can have its own unique forms of enrichment that stimulate natural behaviors and keep the animals active and engaged. Guests will meet some of our outreach animals face-to-face for an enrichment demonstration and even get to bring home a piece of animal-made art!
