Festive Fun at the Zoo
Christmas will arrive early for Orana Wildlife Park’s 400 animals as keepers play Santa and prepare a range of festive
themed treats to hand out tomorrow. Starting from 10.30am various enrichment feeds will occur throughout the day. The
zoo is closed on Christmas Day so by providing the treats a day early, visitors can enjoy seeing the animals munch,
crunch, smash and crack in to their presents.
Acting Manager of Exotic Mammals, Jenny Bowles, says: “providing quality enrichment is important for animal welfare. The
food-based Christmas presents will be something different for the animals and I am sure visitors will also enjoy the
seeing presents ripped and clawed into.”
The Orana team wishes everyone a safe and happy holiday season.
