“A virtual membership is only $25 a year!  The savings from the online shop discount that’s included with the membership would cover that amount after a few purchases,” said Cincinnati Zoo director Thane Maynard.  “And being able to see what’s happening at Hippo Cove every day is priceless.” 

Fiona’s mom Bibi is expecting and due later this summer, so virtual visitors may be among the first to see the baby!  It will certainly be fun to see the interaction between Fiona and her new sibling. 

Current Zoo members will also be able to access the hippo cams, which are live from 8:30 a.m. – 5:30 p.m. EDT daily, and take advantage of the other Virtual Member Center perks.  A valid member ID number is all you need. 

  If you’re visiting us in person, the Zoo opens daily at 10 a.m. and closes at 5 p.m. For more information visit NOTE: Virtual Membership does NOT include admission to the Cincinnati Zoo.
