Prospect Park Zoo

Meet the zoos mascots, a troop of Hamadryas baboons full of entertaining antics that will hold your attention like a good movie. Also in the lifestyles building, learn about animal habitats from treetops to mountains to crater lakes. Activities Animal Encounters Enjoy a close-up encounter with some of our Docents favorite animals which may include a chinchilla, snake, chicken or another of our rotating animal guests. The animals come right into the zoos theater for everyone to see, and sometimes, to touch! Sea Lion Feedings At the heart of the park, bark hello to California sea lions and meet their keepers. Whether they are high-fiving their keepers, showing off their dives, or catching fish on the fly, Stella, Alexis, and Beebe love to impress a crowd. Stop by for one of the three daily feeding demonstrations. Discovery Center Calling all aspiring veterinarians, scientists, and young naturalists! The interactive Discovery Center is made up of various learning stations where children can peer through a microscope lens, try on a pair of butterfly wings, and go nose-to-nose with live animals. They'll also meet our American kestrels and chatty fish crows. Keeper Chats Chat with zookeepers about some of your favorite animals during weekend sessions. Learn how keepers care for the animals and help keep their daily routines lively with toys, foraging games, and habitat enrichment. Feel free to ask questions!
