Without action, many species in the world, including some residing here at the Zoo, face the real threat of becoming extinct, whether from global warming, oil spills, habitat destruction and competition with humans for food and shelter, to name a few.
By hosting conservation education days throughout the year that tell some of these stories, we hope to inspire our visitors to act on their behalf and spread the word to others.
Events take place from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. and are free with Zoo admission.
September 19: Elephant Awareness Day: We will teach you about issues facing elephants and hope to inspire you to become an advocate, eager to assist in protecting elephants in their natural range.
October 3: Genesee Trail Day: The rich traditions of local Native Americans are tied to our area’s natural history. Explore the Zoo’s clan animals with touch table stations at each exhibit.
