Why We Like It

This is an awesome way to re-use browse once an animal has stripped the foliage off of it. It's also an easy enrichment item for volunteers or interns to prepare, and passes the "naturalistic enrichment" test for facilities that require enrichment to blend in with the animal's environment.

Materials
  • Browse without leaves

  • Berries or grapes

How to Make It
  1. Stick berries and grapes onto the thin branches of browse

  2. Place in enclosure by sticking it into the ground, hanging it from above, or simply laying it on the ground
