  • Like a natural habitat | GreenNoise – Spreading the Voice of Nature
    the animals For those that cannot be release we always try to simulate a natural habitat in their enclosures Many visitors express to us There are no animals in that enclosure and usually what happen is that the animals are resting in their shelters The enclosures have natural vegetation inside shrubs and trees plus high interconnected branches hollow logs and high platform where animals can rest play sharpen their claws and mark their area However sometimes because they are limited within fences the animals develop abnormal repetitive behaviors continuous walks excessive grooming inactivity self mutilation aggression Our Rescue Center has an environmental enrichment program that its main objective is to minimize these behaviors through various activities Among the activities we do with the help of volunteers are toys like coconuts covered with cowhide or filled with rabbit feces birds feathers plastic balls frozen blood pineapple leaves or pumpkins cardboard rolls and perfume in logs Similarly the food is placed daily in different places branches hollow logs or platforms to promote their search Environmental enrichment in a rescue center or zoo is very important to maintain the optimal health and normal behavior of animals in captivity Category GNJaguar 0 Comment s
