Binghamton Zoo Celebrates Endangered Species and Armed Forces Day

Binghamton Zoo at Ross Park

On Saturday, Binghamton Zoo at Ross Park will celebrate Endangered Species and Armed Forces Day.

They are highlighting species that are on the brink of extinction and those that have made successful come-backs through the Endangered Species Act of 1973. Since the Act  was enacted, 1,800 species have been listed as endangered, only 9 animals have been declared extinct since the Act’s inception.

The Zoo looks to celebrate our nation’s wildlife and to educate the community about protecting our rare, threatened, and endangered species. There will be a scavenger hunt to find endangered and recovered species through a series of clues that begin at the ticket booth.

They’ll be highlighting their own endangered species. They’ll have artifact tables with activities, coloring pages, and educational information to raise awareness of their own snow leopards, red wolves and more. For more info on Endangered Species Day, go here.

Saturday is also Armed Forces Day at the Binghamton Zoo. All members of the military will receive free admission with ID. They will be open from 10:00am-5:00pm with the last ticket sold at 4:00pm.  To find out about all of the Zoo’s activities and events including next week’s Run Wild 5k, go here.
