What can the Puget Sound’s cultural organizations inspire together?



Celebrating Our Cultural Partners

Arts, science and heritage are the heart of Seattle. Woodland Park Zoo is part of a vibrant and rich community of cultural partners - from artists to actors to animal lovers, museums to musicians, and singers to scientists. We are all Wild at Heart, and we celebrate our unique and collective contributions that bring life to this city.

Each month in 2021, Woodland Park Zoo will join a different cultural partner from the Seattle area for a photo to capture our shared spirit and see what we can inspire together.


This Month’s Spotlight


Together We Jump for Joy!

Featured Partner: Pacific Northwest Ballet

The Pacific Northwest Ballet and Woodland Park Zoo proclaim, “Together we jump for joy!” For our January photo celebration, Pacific Northwest Ballet principal dancers Noelani Pantastico and James Yoichi Moore visited the animals at Woodland Park Zoo for a delightful day of dance. Be it on pointe with penguins or leaping with lions, we can’t contain our excitement to be starting the year together.




Inspire Washington

Woodland Park Zoo and many of the partners above are members of Inspire WA, a statewide coalition that champions advocacy and resource development for Washington’s cultural sector, and works to strengthen communities by increasing access to science, heritage and arts.
