Wildlife Stage Show features animal ambassadors

by Laurie Todd, Education Specialist

Did you get a chance to see ZooPI’s Critter Caper yet this year? We still have our Wildlife Stage Show on Friday, Saturday, and Sunday, through the end of October. During our “slow” season, we spend a lot of time training the education animals for next season’s show. For example, last year, Julia, the thick-billed parrot was trained to take dollar bills for the Thick-Bill Conservation Fund. She has now raised over $1,500 for the fund!

Stay tuned to hear about new behaviors for next years show!
