DUE TO COVID-19 SOME OF OUR WILDLIFE CONNECTIONS HAVE BEEN SUSPENDED TEMPORARILY. PLEASE SEE INFO BELOW.
YOU CAN MAKE A DIFFERENCE! Join us for one of our up-close and personal Wildlife Connections and 100% of the money raised will go directly to help save wildlife in their native habitats.
Want to have a one-on-one experience with one of the Zoo’s exciting animals and their keeper, and at the same time help save animals in the wild? Our Wildlife Connections program is the answer. One of our expert Utah’s Hogle Zoo keepers will be your personal guide as they give you an insider’s look at the Zoo and share their passion for the animals in their care. Listen to stories of the animals’ antics and personality quirks that will open your eyes to what it takes to care for this wild menagerie. Please see Rules and Limitationsbelow.
Cost DOES NOT include Zoo admission!
Space is limited so make your reservation today online or by visiting our Member and Guest Services office.
