New @ The Zoo
Meet The Animals
On Saturday, Sunday and Monday May 25-27, join us at the chimpanzee exhibit in the African Forest this weekend for a very special Spotlight on Species, included in your Zoo admission.
Recycle your cell phone at the Zoo during this event and receive a special chimpanzee conservation bracelet.
You can visit our chimpanzee tool gallery, color a chimp mask, pose for a picture in our chimpanzee cutout, and more! Artwork created by our chimpanzees as well as other items will be for sale to raise money for chimpanzee conservation.
We’ll have two special Meet the Keeper Talks during this event – at 12:30 the chimps will receive special food items to fish for in their termite mound. At 2:30 we’ll have a chimp painting or training demonstration!
