Paignton Zoo gorilla painting draw

Why we need your help

Win an original piece of artwork painted by Paignton Zoo’s Western Lowland gorillas!

Our gorillas have been keeping themselves busy during lockdown - they have been painting! Our troop of gorillas have produced an amazing collaborative piece of artwork and we're giving you the opportunity to win it, to raise funds for the zoo.

Tickets cost just £2 each for the draw to win this amazing masterpiece! And you can buy as many tickets as you like! All entries must be submitted through this dedicated campaign. Proceeds will go towards to care of our animals and our vital wildlife conservation work.

The draw will be open until 4pm on – Tuesday 15th December 2020, with the winner drawn and announced the following day.
 
Animal enrichment
At Paignton Zoo, our keepers do what they can to provide enrichment for the animals. Enrichment is anything you can present to animals that encourages them to be stimulated both mentally and physically and generally enhances animal care. It can be sensory such as different smells, textures to touch or even visual. One thing we find our apes like to do is painting!
They find painting fun and enjoyable and you can really see how much they concentrate on what they are doing. The paint used is non-toxic and safe for animals. The canvas used is clean from any zoonosis, as the gorillas do not touch the canvas except when using the tool. If a gorilla licks or touches the end of the tool used to paint, it is swapped for a ‘clean’ one.
As always with enrichment or training with their keepers, it is always the animal’s choice to take part in activities and the gorillas are never rewarded with food - they simply find painting rewarding enough!
