Other activities include Riverbanks' Wings of the South bird show at 1:30 pm followed by a keeper-guided feeding and vulture walk to various bird exhibits throughout the Zoo. There will also be several up-close animal encounters throughout the day. View general admission rates.
Note: Vultures face threats in many areas where they live, and some species are even in danger of becoming extinct. International Vulture Awareness Day is a coordinated effort to bring greater attention to the importance of vulture conservation around the world.
