TORONTO ZOO'S UPCOMING EVENTS

Don't forget to check out the following events taking place at the Zoo:

WE'RE CELEBRATING GRANDPARENTS AND SENIORS*

Brought to you by the National Campaign for Better Hearing in Partnership with ListenUP! Canada

The National Campaign for Better Hearing, in partnership with ListenUP! Canada and the Toronto Zoo, is hosting Grandparents Day and Seniors Day on Sunday, September 11 and Monday, September 12, 2016 respectively. The campaign’s objective is to raise awareness of hearing loss by ensuring all Canadians 60+ receive a baseline hearing test and begin annually monitoring their hearing health.

ListenUP! Canada hearing professionals will be on-site at the Toronto Zoo to provide FREE, no obligation hearing screening tests on both days*. As part of this campaign, they will be donating $4 for every hearing screening test in order to provide hearing aids for those who cannot afford them. The campaign’s goal is to raise over $250,000 for hearing aids this year!

Sunday, September 11th: Grandparents are invited to get a free hearing test in the Wildlife Marquee while Grandkids enjoy face painting, caricature drawings and colouring activities! We will also be offering special keeper talks featuring Zoo grandparents! The fun starts at 9:30am and runs until last hearing test booking at 5pm.

Monday, September 12th: Seniors, 65+ will receive free Zoo admission and Zoomobile ride from ListenUp! Canada. Throughout the day Seniors will have the chance to receive a hearing test in the Wildlife Marquee plus enjoy other fun promotions from 9:30am to 3:30pm. Seniors, 65+ will also receive a 10% discount off of their purchase at Africa, Americas and Peacock Cafe Restaurants.
