The Animal Play Day on Saturday 9th December is an opportunity to highlight animal enrichment at Monarto Zoo. As we approach the Christmas season, the Play Day will follow a festive theme featuring special talks from keepers on enriching the lives of the animals in their care, and how you can use these ideas at home with you own pets.

Take home activities

There will be an art and craft activity in the Visitor Centre where guests can make a small take home toy for their pets.
