Today I helped out at Reaseheath College zoo doing some love heart themed enrichment as part of BIAZAs Love Your Zoo Week. The zoo has been open to the public all week, with a range of activities for the kids too.
Me and a friend built heart shaped boxes, and hearts with slots for food, for different animals around the centre.
All the animals really engaged with the enrichment and it was really enjoyable to watch. The public seemed to enjoy it too, a group of young lads stood watching while George the serval tired to figure out how to get the meat out of his box :)
George the serval, with his meaty surprise :)
The porcupine boys loved their heart treats too.
The capybara hijacked the heart box that was meant for the tapir, but they had a good munch on the cardboard. The lemurs were really intrigued by their swinging heart too.
All in all it was a really enjoyable day :) It was nice to give the animals something a little different.
