Bears are incredibly intelligent animals. In our efforts to give our rescued bears a life as close to natural as possible and to keep their complex minds challenged, we provide them with different enrichment activities on a daily basis.
Specially made for bears, treat balls are stuffed with vegetables and other treats. Each bear gets their own treat ball - they'll often lie on their back and roll the ball around, using their long tongues and claws to extract the treats and peering into the ball with one eye to see if there is anything left inside
Treat balls are definitely one of the favorite enrichment activities of the bears.
Send a bear a treat ball - they'll be very beary happy with your gift. Better still, visit our sanctuary as volunteer or on a bear care tour and you can prepare and give a treat ball to a bear yourself!
