Toronto Zoo Weekly Feature - Wednesday, 2013-10-16

 

Saturday, October 26th

6:30 pm to 9:00 pm


Join us for a truly unique, and chilling, Halloween event where we explore the mystery and symbolism of death. The evening not only includes a sit down dinner but also a special talk about the weird and wild ways that animals and plants associate with death. We will also dispel the myth on some of the world's deadliest animals and plants, get to the bottom of how some animals can actually use death to their advantage and take you (if you dare) on a tour of our Wildlife Health Centre.

COST (per adult 18+ years of age):
$65 Zoo Member, $120 Zoo Members Couple
$75 Non-Member, $140 Non-Members Couple

The Program includes:
  • A three course dinner
  • Opportunity to view the Wildlife Health Centre
  • A special guest animal appearance
  • An interactive, themed presentation
  • Free parking
