Please be advised that on April 25 at Franklin Park Zoo and April 26 at Stone Zoo, we will be conducting a routine animal escape drill. These drills are an important part of our preparedness training. While the drill is occurring, guests will be asked to move to certain areas within the Zoo for a brief period of time (not to exceed 10 minutes). We will do our best to have minimal impact on the guest experience. We are very dedicated to safety and we appreciate your participation. If you have any questions about what to expect, please do not hesitate to contact us at 617-989-2000 or

"In the end, we will conserve only what we love, we will love only what we understand, and we will understand only what we are taught."

-Baba Dioum

Our conservation efforts benefit not only the species we're working to save, but the community involved in saving them. With every "Turtle Crossing" sign we hang, we remind our neighbors that we share our roads, our neighborhoods, our earth, with these small, yet significant species. Your support makes it possible to continue to raise our voices and join our communities in raising awareness, one tiny creature at a time.
