Presented locally by Bob Moore Subaru, World Okapi Day is Friday, October 18 from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. at the Oklahoma City Zoo. Hidden in the dense forests of the Democratic Republic of Congo lives the mysterious and enigmatic okapi. Although a respected cultural symbol of the only country in which it is found, it is threatened by slash-and-burn agriculture, illegal mining and poaching. World Okapi Day invites wildlife fans of all ages to learn more about okapis and how to help protect them. Event activities include conservation games, keeper chats, enrichment sessions, photo opportunities and more. This event is free with Zoo admission.
After the event, okapi fans can continue their support by visiting OKC’s Vanessa House Brewery, a World Okapi Day partner contributing a portion of sales from 12 noon – 11 p.m. to conserving the species and its habitat.
