Kegs For Suki

Asian elephant walks through their habitat at Point Defiance Zoo.

Have you ever wondered…. What exactly is animal enrichment?

Here’s a wonderful example.

After months of waiting, Suki, the elephant was finally able to play with two modified kegs donated by Harmon Brewing Co. that were stuffed with grapes and hanging in the elephant habitat.

To get to the tasty treats, Suki has to manipulate the keg, which is a bit of a challenge. This animal enrichment activity is not only fun for her, but is also great exercise.
