This weekend was a more natural enrichment period. At several locations on the sanctuary, there are patches of bamboo, honeysuckle, mulberry trees, hackberry trees, grape vines and others that grow either naturally or that we have planted over the years.
During the colder periods, there are 2 main sources of "browse" we can use and those are rye grass and bamboo. With spring approaching new browse will soon be available.
In the meantime, bamboo is still used as the main primate enrichment browse. Animal Caregiver Alex Luna seen here is taking one of the four large trash bags seen here that are filled to maximum capacity by volunteers clearing bamboo at their home.
Thanks to these off-site volunteers, the days are still green for the residents!
