  • Gorillas on the Line Cellphone Challenge Kick-Off

    Feb 1st, 2020
    All-day Event
    OKC Zoo

    When gorillas are on the line, it’s up to us to answer the call! From Feb. 1 through April 30, the Zoo is looking to the community-at-large to help save gorillas by donating old or used cell phones to the Gorillas on the Line Cell Phone Challenge. Small electronics frequently contain a substance called coltan and 80 percent of the world's coltan supply is in the Democratic Republic of the Congo, also home to many gorillas. Mining for coltan threatens the habitats of gorillas, chimpanzees, okapi and other endangered species. When individuals donate used phones or other electronics, the coltan from those devices is re-used and reduces the need to mine for the compound in gorilla habitats. The global goal for Gorillas on the Line is to collect 20,000 devices in 2020! Schools, organizations, businesses and individuals are encouraged to collect as many cell phones and electronics as they can in support of gorilla conservation. These items can be dropped off for recycling in the Zoo’s guest experience office in the entry plaza.

  • Groundhog Day

    Feb 2nd, 2020
    10:00am - 10:30am
    Big Rivers Building - Oklahoma Trails

    With help from the OKC Zoo’s weather-aware bears, you won’t need to seek this year’s Groundhog Day prediction elsewhere! Sponsored by Bob Moore Subaru, this annual event includes a themed enrichment activity for the bears to engage with as they put their fur-casting skills to the test. Because the Zoo does not have groundhogs in its collection, the bears have become our official Groundhog Day ambassadors. Activities are scheduled to take place at 10 a.m. at the Big Rivers building in the Zoo's Oklahoma Trails and are free with admission. Guests will enjoy Shipley’s Donuts and coffee while supplies last as they take part in this wild weather tradition.

  • Connect with Wildlife Challenge

    Feb 2nd, 2020
    All-day Event
    OKC Zoo

    Here’s a wild idea–disconnect from your cell and reconnect with nature at the Oklahoma City Zoo! On Sunday, February 2, in exchange for free general admission, the Zoo is challenging guests to unplug from their mobile phones during the duration of their visit.

    Guests who feel up to the “Connect with Wildlife Challenge” can securely check-in their cellphones at the Zoo’s Guest Services office (located in the entry plaza) before exploring the park. An added incentive: those who bring an old cell phone or small electronic device to donate to “Gorillas on the Line” will get two Zoo general admission passes valid through April 30, 2020.
