Go wild at night for a great cause! The Zoo and the Oklahoma Zoological Society (OZS) have teamed up to create a new conservation event, SafariSoirée, scheduled for Friday, April 24, 2020, from 6 to 11 p.m.!  Safari Soirée will be a night to celebrate the community’s support of the Zoo’s conservation efforts to help save plants and animals here in Oklahoma and around the world, now spreading across four continents.

Safari Soirée is a paid event limited to guests ages 21-and-up that will include fabulous food, exotic drinks, rare animal experiences and, of course, flashlights for exploring. The evening will also include a live band, a DJ, a scavenger safari game with prizes, and the freedom to explore and rediscover Oklahoma’s oldest and largest cultural attraction.

Guests are encouraged to explore the Zoo to discover multiple, illuminated conservation stations. At each station, the Zoo will highlight one of four global conservation programs that protects critically endangered species represented at the Zoo, including orangutans in Borneo, Asian elephants, Sumatran tigers and African painted dogs.

All net proceeds of this larger event will benefit the overall conservation efforts of the Zoo. For several years, the Zoo took part in many conservation initiatives, such as Cell Phone Recycling and Round Up for Conservation programs, as well as educated guests on issues such as palm oil, poaching and habitat loss. The Zoo bolstered its conservation efforts in 2016 and donated more than $280,000 to local and global projects that range from the purchase of rain-forest in Sumatra to protect endangered elephants, tigers and orangutans to supporting local habitats for monarch butterflies. OZS, the 501 (c)(3) charitable organization that supports the Zoo, is also dedicated to conservation and supporting the Zoo in its efforts. With more than 28,000 member households, a portion of each ZOOfriends’ membership purchased or renewed supports the Zoo’s conservation initiatives. Other funding support comes from conservation events, such as Safari Soiree.
