January Enrichment Themes

Editor’s Note: Every day at CHCI we put out a wide variety of enrichment items for the chimpanzees: clothing, sheets, drawing material, containers, toys, hoses, mirrors, brushes, and so on. Most days we have some sort of theme to the objects, which helps keep us from using the same objects in the same ways day after day. Other days we incorporate a forage or something else special into the general enrichment items, as well. Here are the themes from January 2008.
