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

December 2021

Together We Lift Spirits

Featured Partner: Space Needle

Animals always lift our spirits. In return, we gave them a lift…to the very top of the Space Needle as we close out our year-long Wild at Heart celebration. Buddy the pharaoh eagle owl got a birds-eye-view of the city, while Eduardo the Southern three-banded armadillo took in the sights, and Skyáana the North American porcupine reached new heights for a natural climber.



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.
