Help Us Bring Enrichment to Facilities Around the World
The Shape of Enrichment, Inc. provides inspiring information and materials about enrichment and animal welfare to animal care professionals worldwide. Through our workshops, online publication, and website, we are able to help a wide variety of animals and the people who care for them, providing a foundation and ideas for a dynamic and creative enrichment program at any facility. We also fund travel grants for animal care professionals to attend enrichment conferences to expand their knowledge, and interact and share ideas with their colleagues. We at The Shape of Enrichment volunteer our time and consider this work a labor of love, something we believe in and are committed to. The only sources of income for our nonprofit organization are subscriptions and donations.
We have also set up a special donation fund specifically to help keepers attend conferences that they might otherwise be unable to participate in: the Lee Houts Memorial Fund, which you can read more about HERE.
If you would like to help extend the reach and positive influence of enrichment and animal welfare, your donation will make a significant difference for animals in zoos, aquariums, and other wildlife facilities—and you will help provide education and training for those who care for them.
Thank you! We—and the animals—appreciate your help and generosity!
