New @ The Zoo
Meet The Animals
We're renovating our concessions at Cypress Circle. Look for many other refreshment options at Macaw Cafe, Twiga Cafe and at carts and kiosks around the zoo.
Thursday, October 2, sea lions will be off exhibit.
The following exhibits are closing early for private events:
Kipp Aquarium – Thursday, October 2 – 5:00 p.m.
Natural Encounters – Friday, October 3 – 3:00 p.m.
Natural Encounters – Monday, October 6 – 4:00 p.m.
This Member Morning features the Aquarium, which will showcase its green sea turtle. Members will enjoy a special visit from Dr. Joe Flanagan as he answers questions and discusses his extensive experience working with sea turtles. After this Member Morning, enjoy other Save a Turtle Saturday activities throughout the Zoo.
At Member Mornings, the Zoo will open one hour early at 8:00 a.m. on the first Saturday of each month, just for Members only. See animals as they come outside for the day, a time of day when they are most active. You’ll also get a special Meet the Keeper Talk at 8:30 a.m. This event is always FREE for Zoo Members, and there’s no need to RSVP – just show up and enjoy!
