Animal Corner – Monkey Training

Did you know that the capuchin monkey is among the most intelligent primate species? Because of this, we know how important it is to make sure every monkey at the park receives plenty of physical and mental exercise. In the Wild Animal Weekend video above, you can see us providing enrichment to our capuchin, Winston. With this simple training session, Winston remains active and has to figure out what he needs to do to receive his reward. We try to do activities like this with each animal at the park, and you can sometimes see it in person when you visit. Until then, watch the video above to see an example of monkey training enrichment!
