Enjoy cooler weather and see the keepers prepare enrichment and exhibit areas all around the zoo. Then, visit and enjoy a special Meet the Keeper Talk in the designated area at 8:30 a.m. Hear from one of our Zoo’s experts and gain professional insight about these select animals. Learn from the best in the field about what it really takes to care for the diverse animals that call the Zoo home!
This event is always FREE for Zoo Members, and there’s no need to RSVP – just show up and enjoy!
Special Member Preview – Gorillas at the Houston Zoo
As a Member, Be the First to See Gorillas!
May 16 – 21, Member Preview begins at Noon on May 16
Can’t wait to see Gorillas at the Houston Zoo? As a Member, you will be offered the opportunity to see Gorillas during a special, members only preview before the exhibit opens to the public.
In the meantime, we’ve created a special website to give you a sneak peak of the state-of-the-art habitat as well as feature the seven western lowland gorillas who call the new space home.
Take a peak at what we’ve been working on and get excited for gorillas at the Houston Zoo!
Breakfast with the Animals
Come enjoy a scrumptious breakfast buffet with the Bears. Meet the Keepers who personally work with these animals and learn about the Zoo’s conservation initiatives that affect Bears in the wild. You will also have the opportunity to watch the feeding habits and special enrichment activities created for the occasion, before enjoying the rest of your day at the Zoo.
More 2015 Dates will be announced soon!
