Behavioral Enrichment (B.E.) is anything that enhances animals’ lives. It is anything that stimulates the five senses: touch, sight, smell, hearing, and taste, and a given item can actually stimulate multiple senses at once.
Our Conservation Technicians take every opportunity to use B.E. to encourage natural behaviors in the Mount Graham red squirrels.
And, the best part about B.E. is that it doesn’t have to be anything elaborate!
