Featured A.D.O.P.T. Animals

ADOPT an Okapi

 

World Okapi Day is October 18th! Join us as we celebrate the second annual World Okapi Day. The elusive okapi is a mysterious mammal that is nearly impossible to observe in the wild. Their existence is under serious threat from the impact of humans. You can help support these animals by becoming an okapi A.D.O.P.T. parent. Anyone who purchases an okapi A.D.O.P.T. between now and October 31st will be entered into a raffle to win an exclusive Behind The Scenes experience with the okapi. Winner will be chosen on November 1st.

ADOPT Moe the Sloth

 

International Sloth Day is October 20th! Join us for special animal encounters and enrichment. Plus, for all you Moe the sloth fans out there, if you A.D.O.P.T Moe between now and Oct. 20th, you will be entered into a drawing for a private meet & greet with Moe for up to 4 people. By becoming a Cincinnati Zoo A.D.O.P.T. parent, you help to provide food, toys, and fun enrichment items to our Zoo’s animal family.

The Cincinnati Zoo supports our colleagues at The Sloth Institute Costa Rica (TSI). TSI was established in 2014 and is a branch of Kids Saving The Rainforest (KSTR).  Part of TSI’s mission is to rehabilitate injured and orphaned sloths, release them back into the wild, and then collect data on the released and wild sloths in the area of the release. The other part is to educate the local community about how to peacefully coexist with native wildlife, particularly sloths!
