Celebrate Azize’s 4th Birthday!
May 11, 2019 @ 10:00 am - 2:00 pmSee website.
Azize, the youngest of Franklin Park Zoo’s western lowland gorilla troop, will turn four in May and you're invited to the party. Watch Azize and the rest of the gorillas enjoy special enrichment treats, learn all about the animals during zookeeper encounters and more! Guests will also have the opportunity to sign a giant birthday card for Azize.
Zoo New England is proud to support conservation work on behalf of gorillas, including through the Ape TAG Conservation Initiative, a collective effort by zoos to help conserve wild populations of endangered apes in their natural habitats. Through cell phone recycling, people can also help to protect gorillas. By recycling cell phones, the need for additional coltan, which is mined in central African forests right in the gorillas’ habitat, is reduced, and in turn, so is habitat destruction. Guests to Franklin Park Zoo can drop off their old cell phones, which are recycled through the Eco-Cell program
Please note: Gorillas will go on exhibit at 10:15 a.m.
