Spend Mother’s Day at Zoo Atlanta

Mothers enjoy free admission on May 12.

WHAT:
Zoo Atlanta celebrates moms of all species on Mother’s Day. On Sunday, May 12, mothers enjoy free admission with purchase of any regularly-priced child’s or adult’s general admission ticket.

The Mother’s Day discount is valid only on May 12, 2019, and may not be combined with any other discount. Mothers do not require a ticket if accompanied by a child or adult with a regularly-priced ticket, which may be purchased online or at Zoo Atlanta Admissions.

Zoo Atlanta Members, who already enjoy free admission year-round, may also treat mothers to a Zoo day on Mother’s Day. Members may bring up to two mothers at no charge, provided mothers are accompanied by an individual named on the Membership.

About Zoo Atlanta
A proud accredited member of the Association of Zoos and Aquariums (AZA), the gold standard for animal care and welfare, Zoo Atlanta has a mission to save wildlife and their habitats through conservation, research, education and engaging experiences. The Zoo is home to more than 1,000 animals representing more than 200 species from around the world, many of them endangered or critically endangered. Highlights include giant pandas, including Ya Lun and Xi Lun, the only giant panda twins in the U.S.; one of North America’s largest zoological populations of great apes; and a global center of excellence for the care and study of reptiles and amphibians. Recent transformations include Scaly Slimy Spectacular: The Amphibian and Reptile Experience, home to more than 70 species in the world’s first LEED Gold-certified reptile and amphibian complex. Experiences include behind-the-scenes Wild Encounters with African lions, Aldabra giant tortoises, giant pandas and lemurs. Zoo Atlanta is open year-round with the exceptions of Thanksgiving and Christmas Day. Keeper Talks, interactive wildlife presentations, education programs and special events run year-round. For more information, visit zooatlanta.org.

Coming in summer 2019: the all-new African Savanna, featuring new and expanded habitats for African elephants, giraffes, zebras, ostriches, warthogs and meerkats. The African Savanna is part of the Zoo’s landmark Grand New View transformation. Future elements include Savanna Hall, a state-of-the-art special event destination, and a new grand entry plaza, opening in early 2020.
