Third-graders from Laurel Oaks Elementary watch through one of the three new viewing walls at the African Wild Dog exhibit Wednesday at the Naples Zoo. One of the dogs tears into a piñata full of treats that the students made as a community service project. The dogs’ new exhibits allow for a less-obstructed view of the animals in their habitat. The third-graders created 22 piñatas after reading a story titled “The Piñata Maker” in class as part of Cinco de Mayo. The students asked zoo officials if they could give the dogs the homemade creations for the African Wild Dogs enrichment.
