    Dads Trade Cologne for FREE Zoo Admission

    On Sunday, June 18, dads can celebrate Father’s Day at Naples Zoo for free by trading some of those half-empty bottles of cheap aftershave from previous Father’s Days. Along with a paid child (or adult) ticket, dads just need to bring a new or partially used bottle of cologne to the Zoo on Father’s Day. Dad and family can then enjoy cruising through islands of monkeys, seeing the new cheetahs, feeding the giraffes, and more. Why does the Zoo want aftershave? For the animals, of course!  This annual call for cologne provides new scents for the animals to enjoy all year.

    Enrichment through scent sensory
    We aren’t asking for aftershave to make the animals smell pretty. It’s sprayed in their habitats. Dads and their families will be able to watch the animals’ reactions to these aftershaves as the scents are used throughout the day for animal enrichment. Naples Zoo coordinates different activities for the animals to promote use of their natural abilities. As many animals perceive the world as much through smell as we do through sight, a spritz of cologne on a tiger-sized toy, a tree, or a path arouses curiosity in the animals to use their skills to investigate their surroundings.  Donated cologne will be used throughout the day during Meet the Keeper Series talks highlighting these enrichment activities. If dad doesn’t have aftershave to donate, some of mom’s perfume will work, too.
