Enrichment is an incredibly important part of what we do at Wildlife Images! To be as happy and healthy as possible the animals in our care require stimulus that challenges them and helps them engage all their senses. Otherwise, as you can imagine, they would get quite bored. We don’t want that… so we provide all sorts of items to crawl on and in, chew on and taste, new smells, new sights and new sounds. Each animals’ enrichment plan is created to promote skills, habits, and experiences they would encounter in the wild. To provide these daily opportunities for the animals we look to the public to help acquire enough items. A couple times a year we hold enrichment drives. This spring, Big Lots has partnered with us during their upcoming Friends & Family Sale. On Saturday, April 7th from 10:00 – 2:00 and Sunday, April 8th from 12:00 – 4:00 you can stop by the Grants Pass Big Lots location to take part. You can find an enrichment wishlist here.
