Enrichment comes in many forms and is an important part of captive gorillas’ lives as they rely on their human caregivers for all their needs to be met. For example gorillas enjoy celebrating Halloween and other human holidays with us!
Spending time and foraging outside with different tactile, olfactory and visual experiences allow great apes to express some of their natural behaviors.
Pumpkins are a seasonal enrichment that the gorillas really enjoy.
Gorillas deserve our best care — which includes opportunities to spend lots of time outside, and express both their autonomy and fun-loving nature.
