How do I keep my rabbit happy and entertained?
Rabbits are naturally active, social, curious and intelligent animals. In the wild, rabbits will graze, play, explore and groom each other. When kept as pets, rabbits are often confined for long periods of time. Without adequate stimulation and environmental enrichment, these long hours of confinement can lead to boredom, frustration and poor welfare.
What is environmental enrichment?
The concept of environmental enrichment for animals is to enhance the quality of life of an animal by providing stimuli in the environment which will promote optimal physiological and psychological well-being. This is generally achieved by providing animals with 'choice' allowing them greater control over their environment.
