To satisfy a carnivore's curiosity and a pachyderm's prowess, the Wildlife Conservation Society has developed an enrichment program that exercises animal minds and muscles. Keepers at the New York Zoos and Aquarium work with their charges to strengthen bonds, stimulate natural instincts and behaviors, and facilitate care. Enrichment items can range from a giant pulley toy for big cats, to a foraging log for birds or octopuses, to a mobile for monkeys. Visitors can watch animal playtime and training sessions at exhibits throughout the parks.
