Animal Safari

Aug. 28-Sept. 4, 2021

A virtual event for animal sponsors

Did you know there’s more to the Milwaukee County Zoo than most guests see? Animal sponsors can venture deeper into the Zoo experience at this virtual behind-the-scenes event. With COVID-related safety concerns for both the Zoo’s animals and our guests, we are unable to hold our traditional in-person behind-the-scenes event.

While the animals will miss seeing you, animal sponsors can virtually explore areas not normally open for tours. Knowledgeable tour guides and zookeepers will take you off the beaten path to discover areas in the Zoo you may have never seen before, such as the hoofstock barn (formerly the Australia building), Stackner Animal Encounter building, tigers and more!

Animal sponsors from the last two years will be emailed links to the tours on Aug. 27. The links will be available Aug. 28-Sept. 4. Log into your My Account or call the office at 414-258-2333 to make sure your current email address is linked to your account to access these unique tours just for you!

Not an animal sponsor? Not a problem! Sponsor an animal or join the Kids Conservation Club to receive an invitation!
