The Animal Fun Factory Opens at the Miami Zoo
Last Friday was the inauguration of the Animal Fun Factory, Presented by the José Milton Foundation. This novel engagement space allows guests to work alongside staff to build enrichment and training items for the wildlife in our care. The space features enrichment opportunities for the Miami Zoo ambassador animals to enjoy right alongside zoo guests. The exterior of the building has a Cuban and Caribbean theme, complete with usable domino tables for special events. You guys have got to see this for yourself soon!
The Fun Factory will be located opposite of the Wings of Asia Aviary. The new addition will also feature other amenities like a space for distance learning and web-based educational programs and an herb garden for even more animal enrichment. The Fun Factory will be a unique spot for us to connect even more to our animals and express our appreciation for wildlife.
So, if you are planning to visit the Miami Zoo anytime soon, make sure you add this special spot on your agenda so you can experience this first hand! Also, we must mention a very special person who is helping to make this amazing project happen – Ana VeigaMilton. Her family has a long time philanthropic and supportive relationship with the Zoo Miami Foundation.
