Enriching Carcass Feed & Nutritionist Talk

Carcass feeds are a great opportunity for a range of carnivores including Taronga’s Lion pride as it encourages a number of natural behaviours, and it also tests the animal’s strength. Hear about these benefits and more by attending a special enrichment feed hosted by a member of Taronga’s Nutrition team!
