Party for the Planet is Zoo Miami’s annual Earth Day celebration! They will have lots of fun conservation-themed activities for the entire family as well as fun enrichment for the animals! We will be there to share info about all our programs!
Party for the Planet conservation-themed activities are included with Zoo admission.
During Party for the Planet, guests can come free of charge if they donate a cell phone for our ECO-CELL recycling program. Free zoo entrance not valid for private events. Not only will each person donating a cellphone enter the zoo for free on these two days, but they will also help save gorillas! Cell phones include coltan, a mineral extracted in the deep forests of Congo in central Africa, home to the world's endangered lowland gorillas. Fueled by the worldwide cell phone boom, Congo's out-of-control coltan mining business has in recent years led to a dramatic reduction of animal habitat and the rampant slaughter of great apes for the illegal bush-meat trade. By turning in your cell phone, we can hopefully reduce the need for additional coltan … and help protect the gorillas.
