2014 Tour Descriptions & Prices

**Tour experiences may vary based on animal behavior that day. Maximum of 6 people per tour and a minimum age of 5 years old.**

Giraffes - $15 per person, 6 person maximum
The giraffe feeding opportunity allows you to get up close to these magnificent animals, as well as hand feed them.  Tour guests will learn from the area keepers about the Zoo’s giraffe herd, as well as their status in the wild.
Seals - $50 per person, 6 person maximum
For this special treat, keepers take you right into the seal exhibit where you’ll see a staff-led training demonstration.  You’ll join in by feeding the seals some fish too!  Keepers will talk about our seals at the Zoo, show you the indoor holding areas for these animals, and also introduce the issues seals face in the wild.  *If inclement weather, tour & training session will occur within the indoor holding area.

The 2014 Summer Behind-the-Scenes Tours are finishing the development process.  Please check back soon for opportunities.
