Lion brothers Dinari and Kamaia turn nine in March, and guests are invited to celebrate the occasion. This roaring good time will include special birthday enrichment items for the lions, and an opportunity to meet with one of the zookeepers who cares for them. Get creative with lion-themed arts and crafts and learn more about these big cats at the education station. Guests can also sign a giant birthday card, and enjoy a slice of cake from Montilio’s Baking Company (available for the first 200 people).
Don’t miss the chance to hear from Tina Ramme, wildlife biologist and CEO of Lion Conservation Fund, who will speak about her work to help restore lion populations and habitat in Kenya. Lion Conservation Fund is committed to supporting conservation and research initiatives to increase understanding of lion behavior, ecology and biology.
*Please note that lions go on exhibit at 10:15 a.m.
