CINCINNATI, OH (January 29, 2021) – Cincinnati Zoo & Botanical Garden is reprising the wildly popular Home Safaris that it created to bring the Zoo to people at home when it was closed last spring. The winter Home Safari series, which starts Monday and runs through the end of February, will feature behind-the-scenes visits, animals enjoying enrichment, and some surprise announcements!
“Millions of people all over the world enjoyed our 2020 virtual Home Safari series, so we thought it would be great to offer them again so they could see what their favorite animals are up to and meet some new ones,” said Cincinnati Zoo director Thane Maynard. “Fiona fans will get to see her step on the scale and find out if she’s been putting on the pounds!”
Spoiler alert! There will be a pregnancy reveal during the Home Safaris, which will be delivered live on Facebook, weekdays at 1pm. Week one will also include an introduction to our new ostrich, Myrtle, and a chance to check in on Komodo dragon Hudo and see how he’s doing after his double cataract surgery!
All past and future Home Safaris can also be found on the Zoo’s YouTube channel.
