Beary Exciting EED Test #2 March 31, 2022 – using the taller “delivery tube”

Since the bear habitat perimeter fencing is tall, we had to design a way to get the food dispensed over the fence. This tube can extend up to 12 feet. The blower is housed in a sound suppression compartment.

This EED will be located at the Brevard Zoo’s Black Bear Habitat. This EED will have a freestanding motion sensor outside the habitat’s perimeter fencing. When the bears walk near and activate the sensor, the food/snacks will be blown into their habitat. This will encourage natural foraging behavior
