Our current project – an Aviary EED for ZooTampa

This environmental enrichment device (EED) will consist of a metal cart that can be moved about ZooTampa to showcase their animal ambassador birds.

There will be perches for the birds made from pvc and then covered with a type of epoxy used in animal habitats. The perches will resemble branches. The birds will be able to activate recessed buttons to choose a water spray, sound/music, breeze from a small fan or a food dispenser. Don learned to weld just so he could build the cart!
