We are interested in getting more enrichment ideas for our sanctuary and sharing those new ideas with others! If you would like to submit an enrichment idea or add supplemental information to an already published idea, please see below.
Please submit the following information to us:
1: Title for the enrichment.
2: Details: All materials needed and assembly instructions.
3: Cost or at least an educated guess for costs.
4: Explanation: How will the enrichment be used by the chimpanzees? For example, if your idea was raisin boards, you would write that caregivers push raisins into the holes drilled in each board and then lock the boards to the caging. The chimpanzees are then given tools like chopsticks to get the raisins out.
5: Photos. Send photos with a minimum width of 15″ or, better yet, these dimensions: 1086x724px; 72 resolution.
6: Supplemental information such as links to other sites or videos featuring the enrichment.
Please note! We cannot guarantee all ideas will be posted to our page. Be patient with us as it may take some time. Remember that by sending us photos, information, etc, you are giving us permission to post these materials online. Thank you!
All questions and information can be emailed to [email protected]
