Animal Play Day – Mother’s Day
Join us for a Mother’s Day themed Animal Play Day at the Orangutan Palapa.
Participate in fun educational activities and coloring from 11:00 a.m. – 3:30 p.m. at the Orangutan Palapa. Our mother and daughter orangutan pair will be also receiving enrichment from their keepers at the following times:
11:00 a.m., 1:30 p.m. and 3:30 p.m.
Orangutans are facing a crisis in the wild due to the loss of their rain forest home to make space for palm oil plantations. The cutting down and burning of the rain forest for these plantations leaves many orangutans homeless and/or orphaned. For more info, please visit redapes.org/mom.
This event is free with the purchase of general admission or Zoo membership. We will be accepting donations for the Missing Orangutan Mothers campaign.
