Celebrate Asia’s most endangered and elusive wild animals at Woodland Park Zoo’s Asian Wildlife Conservation Day. This full day of activities focuses on how you can take action to help save Asian wildlife and habitats. Enjoy kids' craft, coloring activities, keeper talks and more, including:


Collect all Animal Cards at Keeper Talks

Collect a suite of animal collector cards during scheduled keeper talks at Asian Wildlife Conservation Day. Each card features an individual animal living at Woodland Park Zoo, including Towan the orangutan, Helen the snow leopard, and Harold the red panda. During each talk, learn how the zoo is working to preserve their counterparts in the wild with the help of Partners for Wildlife and the Wildlife Survival Fund.



Enter the Raffle for a Painting by Orangutan Towan

Visit the Conservation booth to receive your free raffle ticket for a chance to win one-of-a-kind zoo prizes, including an original painting from orangutan Towan. Then join others in making a pledge to the zoo's orangutans over at the award-winning Trail of Vines exhibit and learn more about creating a sustainable future for this endangered species.



Join the Herd and Take an #elphie

Snap an #elphie (elephant selfie) at the 96 Elephants booth and learn how Woodland Park Zoo is taking action to save elephants in the wild through the nationwide 96 Elephants campaign. Join the herd and sign the pledge never to buy or sell ivory, and tell legislators you support an ivory moratorium in Washington state.
