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 Olan the tiger, Chinta the orangutan, Dhirin the snow leopard, and Elanna the tree kangaroo. 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 To Win one of Three Amazing Prizes

Visit the Conservation booth or the WPZ/Panthera Tiger table to fill in your enter-to-win coupon for a chance to win one-of-a-kind zoo prizes, including an original numbered Tiger print (suitable for framing), a Tiger ZooParent adoption package, or a gift package from the Snow Leopard Trust. Then join others in making a palm 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, and all Asian endangered species.




Join Woodland Park Zoo and support Initiative 1401

Woodland Park Zoo encourages you to help Washington win big for endangered species by voting YES on I-1401 on November 3! Stop by the I-1401 table to learn more and to tell the world why you love elephants, rhinos, tigers, lions, leopards, cheetahs, pangolins, marine turtles, sharks and rays.




Sign up for the Tiger Team

Fewer than 350 Malayan tigers survive in the heart of the wild, but there is hope. If we can protect their habitat and keep them out of the hands of poachers, tiger populations can rebound. Woodland Park Zoo and Panthera work with on-the-ground partners in Malaysia to protect tigers and their forest homes. Will you join us and show your stripes for tiger conservation? Sign up for the Show Your Stripes Tiger Team on the Microsoft Surface tablets in Banyan Wilds, at the Conservation table, or at the WPZ/Panthera table and get updates on tiger conservation news from the field and ways you can help from home or in your community.
