    Earlier this week, Busch Gardens' elephant team added some "colorful" enrichment to the elephants' day by making "elephant footprints" with non-toxic children's poster paint at the park's new Elephant Interaction Wall. The unique prints will be framed and shared with special guests and members of the media who visit Busch Gardens during the Republican National Convention.

    As one of the largest zoos in North America, Busch Gardens offers its more than 2,000 animals various forms of enrichment that are different, unusual and challenging to the animals' regular routine. Food, toys and other interactions are used daily by zookeepers to keep the animals engaged and stimulated, both mentally and physically.
