This story by WLNS.com News looks at Potter Park Zoo in Lansing, Michigan, where ear protection is available to visitors who may be bothered by “sensory overload.”
Sensory overload affects many people, including autistic children and adults, and people with auditory conditions such as tinnitus and hyperacusis.
Kudos to the Lansing Zoo! This is a wonderful idea, and we hope many other zoos and public venues will follow their example.
