We are celebrating Endangered Species Day and want you to join us! Animals become endangered when their population numbers are very low and they come close to extinction. Habitat loss, climate change, and human-animal conflict are some of the reasons animals are becoming endangered. Learn about local species such as the Houston Toad and global species like the Small-Clawed River Otter as well as many other animals from around the world!
Also, bring your old cell phone to the Zoo the day of the event and receive a discount off of your Zoo admission by participating in our Cell Phone Recycling Program! Just look for the booth outside the front gates.
Schedule of Events:
Ongoing 9 a.m. – 3 p.m.
9:30 Otter Enrichment – Natural Encounters
This event is FREE with your paid Zoo admission.
