Did you know that Cheyenne Mountain Zoo is home to three of the world’s most endangered cats?
Snow Leopards: estimated wild population- between 3,000 – 5,000
Amur Leopards: estimated wild population- 35
Amur Tigers: estimated wild population- 260
These cats are disappearing at an alarming rate due to poaching, habitat and prey loss, and conflicts with humans. This year Cheyenne Mountain Zoo, the Quarters for Conservation Program and YOU are helping to save these amazing species from disappearing forever!
Join us on Sunday, September 26th from 10:00a – 3:00p as we celebrate our first ever “Big Cat Bonanza”! This fun-filled day will highlight the amazing conservation work being done by Snow Leopard Trust and the Amur Leopard and Tiger Alliance (ALTA); and supported by our own Quarters for Conservation program. The day’s events will feature many cat-themed activities for kids of all ages, special animal talks and demonstrations, and educational displays on what makes these cats so unique and special! Activities will include:
- Cat adaptation activities!
- Face painting!
- Special dance performances!
- A mini-market of items handmade in Mongolian Snow Leopard habitat!
- Yarn spinning demonstrations!
- And much, much more!
Activities will be happening in the Lodge and Moose Lake, the Loft and in front of the leopard and tiger exhibits. All activities are FREE with zoo admission!
Come join us and other cat lovers on September 26th from 10:00 – 3:00 and be a part of the feline fun!
