Animal Enrichment

Encouraging Play & Good Health!

Over 10,000 enrichment items were used this year at Point Defiance Zoo & Aquarium. Those items can range from throwing a meatball to providing toys in the exhibit that encourage natural animal behavior.

Being able to provide these enriching items to the animals plays a vital part in their animal care, it’s one of the amazing ways the Zoo team makes sure the animals are thriving.

If you would like to support our enrichment fund you can do so by donating.

Thank you for your support through 2022!
