    Sarah, one of our keepers, explains that Animals in Action (formerly known as Enrichment Day) means several different things at the Memphis Zoo. 

    "We focus on animal encounters and shows for the public, animal training demonstrations between the animals and their keepers, and enrichment items for the animals. These experiences encourage physical activity and mental stimulation for the animals, which is very important to their well-being. Hope toes everyone enjoy the day as much as the animals will!"
