Conservation Education Days


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.

All events take place from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. (unless otherwise noted) and are free with Zoo admission.
