Do you have any fragrances that you don’t use.
If your answer is yes, then there’s a way you can donate this!
The big cats of Banham Zoo in Norfolk, England, would be very happy to get your extra perfumes and colognes. According to the zoo post, they are asking for donations of “old or unwanted Xmas perfumes.”
“For several years now, zookeepers all over the world have been aware that scent can play an important part in their enrichment programs, providing animals with opportunities to express natural behaviors and many species, especially big cats, respond very positively to unique scents when sprayed in their enclosures,” the zoo offered an explanation for their request.
The zoo also posted a video in their request for perfume donations that show tigers and leopards rubbing against and scratching surfaces sprayed with perfume.
The zoo did not set any limitations on the fragrances for their tigers and leopards, but they clear their big cats do have choices when it comes to perfumes.
“Our big cats definitely react positively when scents are used as part of their enrichment program. For some reason Calvin Klein perfume is a huge hit with all big cats but in all honesty, any perfumes work well and we do like to offer them a variety of different smells,” the zoo’s animal manager, Mike Woolham, said in a statement.
Those who have perfumes can donate the fragrances to the zoo’s admissions department, and they will pass the bottles along to the big cat keepers.
People who are not able to visit the zoo can mail their donations to Zoo Animal Management, Banham Zoo, Kenninghall Road, Banham, Norfolk, NR16 2HE.
