Toys for Turtles and other Animal Enrichment

June 16, 2020, 11:00 am - 12:00 pm

| free

We have a variety of ambassador animals on display at the UGA Aquarium that we keep healthy and active through animal enrichment activities. Learn about some of the toys we use to entertain snakes, sea turtles and other animals during our upcoming virtual program with aquarium curator Lisa Kovalanchik and marine education fellow Maggie Shiffert. Get the inside scoop on how enrichment activities encourage and challenge natural animal instincts and why it is an important and regular part of aquarium care.
