Party for the Planet is Zoo Miami’s annual Earth Day celebration! We will have lots of fun conservation-themed activities for the entire family as well as fun enrichment for our animals!
Party for the Planet conservation-themed activities are included with Zoo admission.
During Party for the Planet, guests can come free of charge if they donate a cell phone for our ECO-CELL recycling program. Free zoo entrance not valid for private events. Not only will each person donating a cellphone enter the zoo for free on these two days, but they will also help save gorillas! Cell phones include coltan, a mineral extracted in the deep forests of Congo in central Africa, home to the world's endangered lowland gorillas. Fueled by the worldwide cell phone boom, Congo's out-of-control coltan mining business has in recent years led to a dramatic reduction of animal habitat and the rampant slaughter of great apes for the illegal bush-meat trade. By turning in your cell phone, we can hopefully reduce the need for additional coltan … and help protect the gorillas.
Watch as some of our animals tear into their Earth Day treats. Wild animals spend a large portion of their time searching for and consuming food. Here at the zoo, their diets are provided and easily accessible. Therefore, keepers use enrichment like the paper maché items, coconuts, treat bags, etc. to promote natural foraging behaviors.
