Zoo shouts out for herbs and spices

If you’re having a pre-Christmas clear out of your kitchen cupboards, the big cats at Dudley Zoo would love any of your unwanted herbs and spices!

Herbs and spices are great enrichment for animals including Asiatic lions, Sumatran tigers, snow leopards and other carnivore species such as Arctic foxes, encouraging them to use natural behaviours of tracking, foraging and hunting, but our stocks are running low.

Individual animals react differently to certain smells and tastes, so staff like to use as many varieties as possible. 

Donations can be dropped off into the Safari Shop and can either be new or used.

Bosses have also created an Amazon wish-list which is full of items especially chosen by keepers. If you’d like to play Santa, you can click here.
