New for 2017!

Did you ever wonder how zoos acquire animals? Or why you sometimes don’t notice an animal in its exhibit? Or what zoo animals are fed? Specially themed tours are now available each month for members only, offered on the first Saturday and second Sunday of each month. Each month will focus on a different aspect of the animals our collection.

Tours are available to GLAZA members only, and are free for everyone eligible on your membership. No confirmations will be mailed.

Who’s New at the Zoo – January 7 & 8
Happy New Year! Meet our newest residents and learn more about them.

Zoo-pid Cupid – February 4 & 12
Strong, healthy male seeks attractive, young female. Live out of state? No problem! How do zoo animals find the perfect mate? Learn how match making works in the zoo world.

Amazing Adaptations – March 4 & 12
Did you ever wish you had a third hand to help you carry things? Or yearn to swim without a wetsuit year round? Find out how animals can do these things-and more!

April Fools! – April 1 & 9
Where is that snow leopard, it was just here! Where did that bird just appear from? Animals use their fur, feathers and scales to make them selves disappear-or appear to be something else. This month we take a look at some of nature’s tricksters.

Conservation Conversation – May 6 & 14
The zoo is a great place to see and learn about animals, but did you know that zoos also help preserve animals in the wild? This month we take a look at some success stories and some ongoing projects that the Los Angeles Zoo has helped make possible.
