Our two youngest bears, Angus (black bear) and Anna Lou (brown bear), surrendered by a struggling zoo that could no longer care for them, are always into something and make sure their keepers have plenty to clean up every day. Wouldn't want the keepers bored, now would we? They need enrichment, too!
Some enrichment items for our animals can get extremely complex (some things may take days, or even weeks just to build), but we have tons of super simple things we use for enrichment as well; These plain paper bags stuffed with leaves and/or packing paper are a favorite of our young bears, as you will see demonstrated in this video.
You'd be surprised what can be used for animal fun or some of the simplest things we can really use around here at Noah's Ark! If you'd like to buy something to help our animals (and keepers!) please visit our Amazon wish list here----> http://amzn.com/w/MK17YGZITDCM to find all kinds of items that are needed around the sanctuary.
Also, we’d like to give a shout out to our amazing volunteers at Noah’s Ark. One of them captured this fantastic video and sent it to us so we could share it with all of you… Thank you Mark!
