Join us for a unique evening at the Toronto Zoo where you will raise your glass in support of the critically endangered rhino.
Tickets to this special night, only $70 each*, will include appetizers, wine tastings, a silent auction, a special Zoomobile tour to our Indian and White Rhino Exhibits as well as a Meet The Keeper Experience. We will also be holding a live auction where one lucky person will get the chance to have a one-on-one close encounter with the rhinos that evening! Proceeds from the event will support The Lewa Wildlife Conservancy, located in Kenya, which protects many different species including 73 black rhinos and 61 white rhinos.
This engaging and educational evening will provide participants with a unique opportunity to learn the nuances of wine flavours, with four different wines, all led by an experienced wine connoisseur. As well as learning how you can help save and protect rhinos. It's the perfect evening to spend with friends, family or colleagues all while supporting rhino conservation.
As a leader of conservation, the Toronto Zoo, Canada's premier Zoo, is committed to helping spread the message on preserving our natural world. The Raise Your Glass For Rhinos is the main fundraising event of the Toronto Zoo's Chapter of the American Association of Zookeepers (AAZK).

Enrichment Extravaganza For The Month Of June
Join us for Enrichment Extravaganza, where each month we have one particular animal who receives a special enrichment feeding every Saturday.
This month, visit Henry our Abyssinian Ground Hornbill in our Kids Zoo.
The largest of the ground dwelling hornbills, these guys are great flyers but prefer to walk on the ground where they hunt for a variety of animals including snakes, mice, and frogs.
Watch Henry “hunt” for his food every Saturday at 1:30pm for the month of June.
