Providing a Safe and Caring Environment for Exotic Animals


Behavioral Enrichment

The International Exotic Animal Sanctuary not only takes care of the basic needs of the residents, but also offers each animal Behavioral Enrichment. This enrichment consists of boomer balls of all sizes for the animals, tennis balls for the bobcats, tires, pickles and a variety of other enrichment items. To figure out the best enrichment for each animal, IEAS uses what is known as Individualized Enrichment Programs or IEP's. The IEP's will be tailored to each animal's likes and dislikes. They will take the individual's physical, emotional and mental health as well as their background into consideration, and the result will be a program specific to that animal's needs.
