At the Zoo - August 21, 2017 / 10:00 am

Do animals behave differently when experiencing a solar eclipse?

Help answer this question by joining the Animal Observation Experience at Seneca Park Zoo on August 21, 2017.  Join Zoo officials and guests to observe and record animal behavior during the Solar Eclipse.

  • Learn about the eclipse from Zoo interpreters and docents all day long.
  • Join one of the three animal observation stations during the eclipse, and document your observations on the forms provided. In Rochester, the solar eclipse will start at about 1:15 pm and last until about 3:50 pm, with maximum eclipse at 2:35 pm.
  • If you plan on watching the eclipse as well, bring your own eclipse viewing glasses, or make your own pinhole viewer as you enter the Zoo.

The Animal Observation Experience is included with Zoo admission.

Follow along and share your observations with us on social media! Tag us, add us as a location, and use #SPZAnimalExperience.
