Zoo-a-thon - Philadelphia Zoo

*The event has already taken place on this date: Sat, 03/18/2023
Zoo-a-thon is back! Zoo-a-thon 2023 is a two-day crowdfunding campaign focused on raising funds for animal enrichment. 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.

Please help us keep this calendar up to date! If this activity is sold out, canceled, or otherwise needs alteration, email mindy@kidsoutandabout.com so we can update it immediately. If you have a question about the activity itself, please contact the organization administrator listed below.

Join us 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, mural artists from Vurt Creative will be onsite doing live paintings to celebrate the importance of wildlife and art in all our lives. Stay tuned for the full schedule of events!
