Object Enrichment

 

Beach ball day!

Beach ball day!

Human caregivers place new objects in the chimpanzee areas every day: blankets, catalogs, books, magazines, sheets, clothing, shoes, toys, paper, crayons, pencils, water pistols, stuffed animals and more.

We develop themes for object enrichment every day--Green Day, Soft Items Day, Harry Potter Day, and so on and so on. These help ensure that the chimpanzees always have new combinations of objects with which to interact.

Interested in donating new or gently used items to add to the chimpanzees' enrichment? Visit our donation page to learn more about what you can share.
