Orangutan 50th Birthday Party
Celebrate Chinta and Friends

Saturday, February 17, 2018 10:00 AM - 2:00 PM

It's the big 5-0 for Chinta!

The zoo will shower Chinta and her fellow orangutans with gift-wrapped presents full of favorite treats, streamers, flowers and, of course, birthday cake!

Celebrate Woodland Park Zoo's oldest resident with festivities, including:

  • complimentary cake pops courtesy of Woodland Park Zoo Board Member Kevin Schofield (while supplies last)
  • meet ‘n’ greet with animal care staff
  • docents with discovery stations sharing fascinating biofacts
  • free Chinta collectible card

To show love for Chinta and orangutans in the wild, guests are invited to take a palm pledge to choose consumer products that don’t have an adverse impact on tropical rain forests and the animals that live there. In addition, guests can enter a free drawing for a chance to win a commemorative painting created by one of the zoo’s orangutans, an orangutan ZooParent Adoption package and other prizes.
