Black-and-White Friday at Zoo Atlanta

Choose a Black Friday alternative with a single-day discount at the Zoo on November 23.

Choose an alternative to Black Friday shopping — spend a day outdoors with family and friends in the home of the only giant panda twins in the U.S. at Black-and-White Friday at Zoo Atlanta.

On Friday, November 23, enjoy 50 percent off up to two children’s general admission tickets with purchase of any single regularly-priced adult’s general admission ticket. Mention the offer in person at Zoo Atlanta Admissions to redeem the discount.

Zoo Atlanta is one of only four zoos in the U.S. housing giant pandas. Giant panda twins Ya Lun and Xi Lun, who turned 2 on September 3, and their parents, Lun Lun and Yang Yang, both 21, are well-adapted for cooler weather and may often be found in outdoor habitats at the Zoo’s Arthur M. Blank Family Foundation Giant Panda Conservation Center in the fall and winter months.

The giant pandas are ambassadors for Zoo Atlanta’s most significant long-term investment in wildlife conservation. Fewer than 1,900 giant pandas are estimated to remain in the wild in China’s Sichuan, Shaanxi and Gansu provinces. Of these, more than 1,200 live inside nature reserves, and eight of these reserves have been supported by Zoo Atlanta. Although the International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN) downgraded the species’ status from “endangered” to “vulnerable” in 2016, giant pandas remain heavily reliant on conservation programs. Their threats include habitat fragmentation and habitat loss as a result of deforestation and other human activities. Zoo Atlanta has contributed well over $10 million in support of wild giant pandas in China and has provided support for reforestation projects, conservation education programs, giant panda nurseries and field research programs and supplies.

The Black-and-White Friday discount is valid only on Friday, November 23, 2018, and is not valid online; the discount may not be combined with any other offer or promotion.

Share the Zoo with even more family and friends with Zoo Atlanta’s Cyber Weekend Gift Membership offer, valid from Black Friday through Cyber Monday. From Friday, November 23 through Monday, November 26, receive two bonus single-day general admission tickets with purchase of a Zoo Atlanta Gift Membership Gift Card.

Zoo Atlanta will be closed on Thanksgiving Day. Visit zooatlanta.org to plan a holiday weekend visit.
