Tasty Summer Treats!!!

Tori Himes August 19, 2017

Here at the PRC, one of the most important things we provide for our primate residents is new and sometimes tasty enrichment! Enrichment is important because it helps increase the animals’ physical and mental activity levels. Enrichment can be anything from unusual smells to new toys or frozen treats!

With the hot summer months upon us, frozen enrichment is a fantastic way to help everyone cool down. One of our residents' favorite frozen enrichment recipes is Banana Popcicles. We simply chop up some bananas and place them in small paper cups. Then we pour some diluted all-natural juice into the cups and freeze overnight. 

Cysgo capuchin is really enjoying his frozen treat! Using his sharp teeth to bite into the ice and break out the pieces of banana is a fun and enriching experience.

If you would like to donate enrichment items to our monkeys and chimps, check out our Amazon Wishlist. Also, be sure to follow us on Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter to see pictures and videos of our residents enjoying their enrichment!
