Mississippi Aquarium's animal enrichment program provides physically and mentally stimulating toys, activities and environments for all of our animals. Enrichment allow our animals to demonstrate species-specific behavior that would be found in their natural environments.
Our animal care team utilizes a variety of unique and stimulating enrichment items within our different habitats. These items allow our animals to exercise control of their surroundings and enhance their well-being. Just like proper nutrition and veterinary care, animal enrichment is an essential to aspect of animal welfare.
