UPDATE: The Party for Hodari may be suspended on Tuesday, February 12th, due to severe weather. We strive to keep the Giraffe Feeding Experience open 365 days per year, but severe weather sometimes limits our capabilities due to volunteer transportation. Thanks to everyone who has come out to celebrate with us so far!
Green Bay’s favorite giraffe, Hodari, is turning 15 on February 12th! In honor of his special day, the NEW Zoo is hosting some fun, free activities for Zoo guests to enjoy. The “Party for Hodari” will take place on three days: Sunday through Tuesday, February 10th, 11th, and 12th, from 10:30 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. daily. Guests can enjoy free kids’ crafts and educational opportunities inside of the Giraffe Discovery Center, sign a card to wish Hodari a Happy Birthday, plus enjoy 10% off all giraffe-themed items for sale inside of the Paws & Claws Gift Shop.
Visitors can feed Hodari and his companion, Zuri, during the Giraffe Feeding Experience’s open hours from 10:30 a.m. to 12:15 p.m. and from 1:15 p.m. to 3:00 p.m. As a birthday gift for Hodari (and his seemingly-bottomless stomach!), the giraffe food will be on sale for the special price of THREE pieces for just $1.
Don’t forget that Zoo admission is currently half-price through the end of February! That means adults receive entry for just $4.50 and kids (3-15) and seniors (62+) for just $3 each. Kids under 3 are free.
We look forward to showing Hodari some extra affection, and we hope you can join us to celebrate with him, too!
