In the spirit of Halloween, the Montecasino Bird Gardens surprised their resident meerkats with jack-o’-lanterns filled with their favourite treats. Placing new items such as these pumpkins in their habitat is a great form of enrichment as it encourages the meerkats to use their natural instincts to explore their surroundings.
The Montecasino Bird Gardens is open to the public every day, excluding Christmas Day. Through its children’s holiday programme and other special events, the Bird Gardens fulfils an important role in environmental awareness and provides a tranquil and fun-filled environment for the whole family.
