About Me

Hi! I'm Kyle Banton-Jones

I am a zookeeper, enrichment and animal welfare professional and creator of Wildenrichment.com. Based in Ontario, Canada, I have over 8 years of experience working with exotic animals, over 15 years working with domestic animals such as horses and dogs and several years of construction/ maintenance work. The only thing I like more than caring for animals is creating enrichment items that benefit them both physically and mentally. I created this site not only to spread my passion and ideas but the passion and ideas of other animal care professionals as well. With my experience/ skill set I have been able to create unique and species-specific enrichment items for a variety of animals and I’d love to show you how you and your organization can do it too!

Our Mission:

To provide animal care professionals with the tools and resources they need in order to positively affect the welfare of the animals they work with.

Our Vision:

A world where all captive animals receive the mental and physical stimulation they need to thrive.

Our Goals

Here at Wild Enrichment, our goal is simple: We strive to improve the welfare of exotic and domestic animals through the application of advanced behavioural husbandry practices. Animal Care professionals around the world are all faced with common problems when it comes to behavioural husbandry: Time restraints in their day to day routines preventing them from reaching the level of enrichment they wish to achieve, Not having the technical building know-how needed in order to make their enrichment dreams a reality, and a shortage of resources providing new ideas for enrichment. We want to solve these problems.


We want to solve these common behavioural husbandry problems by providing services and resources that provide animal care professionals and the facilities they work at the resources they need to positively affect animal welfare. Wild Enrichment Provides Blog Articles, Consulting Services, and Custom Built Enrichment items that will benefit any behavioural husbandry and enrichment program and take it to the next level.
