Now you can choose how to donate! Introducing the Tulsa Zoo "Wish List".
Enrichment is a very important tool that keepers use to help keep the animals happy and healthy. Enrichment items are designed to promote behaviors that they would demonstrate in the wild. You can help us enrich the lives of our animals by making a donation that goes towards one of the following items. This list will be updated often, so check in regularly to choose your gift! If nothing below suits your fancy, we can always use gift cards from Lowe's, Home Depot, PetSmart or Petco.
Our foxes, raccoons, ringtails and skunks love to play with Kong toys filled with healthy treats. In the wild, these animals would have to search for their food. Kong toys help stimulate our animals by encouraging this behavior.
Kong’s (all sizes): $6 - $8 Amount requested: As many as we can get!
They may look big, but our Asian elephants still enjoy playing with bubbles! It is hard to blow enough bubbles to keep these giants happy, that is why our keepers would love a bubble machine.
Bubble Machine: $100 Amount requested: 1
Birds are very active animals. In the wild they spend a large amount of time searching for food. Treat piñatas and wicker rustlers are great ways for keepers to provide stimulating enrichment for our bird collection.
Treat Piñatas: $8 Amount: 10
Wicker Rustlers: $10 Amount requested: 8
Primates are very intelligent animals; they have even been known to use tools to help find food in the wild. Puzzle tubes encourage the primates to use their problem solving skills to get the treats that are hidden inside.
Puzzle Tube: $25 Amount requested: 6
Who enjoys lounging around in a hammock? Our chimpanzees and howler monkeys do! The primate staff would love to provide them with more hammocks to play, roll, or just hang out in!
Hammocks: $75 Amount requested: 3
Sea lions, bears, and tigers can all enjoy big plastic donut toys. They float, roll, and can be turned into custom feeders by drilling a few holes in them. These toys not only allow the animals to demonstrate a foraging behavior but can also promote a game of chase as they roll around!
Tires/Donuts: $65 Amount requested: 8
