Baton Rouge Zoo Becomes Sensory-Friendly


The Baton Rouge Zoo is teaming with KultureCity to make sure all of its programs and events are sensory inclusive.

Zoo officials say the new initiative will promote an "accommodating and positive" experience for all visiting guests with sensory issues.

According to reports, in order for the zoo to be certified, staff members had to undergo training by medical professionals about how to recognize guests with sensory issues and how to handle a sensory overload situation.

Before attending an event at the zoo, families can download the KultureCity app to see what sensory features are available and where to get them.

The zoo is the first facility in Baton Rouge to be officially certified as a sensory inclusive facility.
