Please note: Volunteers, Zoo employees and local emergency responders will take part in a routine animal escape drill on Wednesday, April 26 at Franklin Park Zoo, and Thursday, April 27 at Stone Zoo. These routine drills are an important part of our preparedness training. While the drill is occurring, guests will be able to participate in the evacuation portion, and may be asked to move to certain areas within the Zoo for a brief period of time (not to exceed 10 minutes).

Be a Super Hero for Endangered Species

Calling all conservation heroes! Meet your favorite Super Heroes and learn how you can be a Super Hero for endangered species!

Tigers, western lowland gorillas and ring-tailed lemurs are just a few of the endangered species you'll see at Franklin Park Zoo who act as ambassadors for their populations around the world. Join us on Endangered Species Day to discover more about these incredible animals and ask questions directly to zookeepers.

Guests will also have the opportunity to meet and take photos with MARVEL’s own Super Heroes, Iron Man and Spider-Man. Kids are encouraged to wear their favorite costumes!
