Event Series Event Series: Zoo-a-thon


March 17 @ 9:00 am - 5:00 pm

As an integral part of providing exceptional animal care, animal enrichment offers a creative outlet for physical activity and mental exercise, offering more choices for animals on how they spend their time. A few examples include puzzle feeders that encourage animals to forage for food; climbing structures that enhance habitats and provide exercise opportunities; and training sessions where animals can interact with keepers.

Join the Philadelphia Zoo on March 17 and 18 for two fun-filled days supporting the Zoo. Be sure to check out special keeper chats and a variety animal enrichment sessions, including animals painting, walking on the main path, going through obstacle courses, and more, throughout the two-day celebration. On Friday at 11:00 am at KidZooU, mural artists from VURT Creative will be onsite for the first-ever art collaboration between humans and animals at the Zoo. Donate $75 or more and enter for a chance to win!
