A party of peacocks all in a line…follow them to Zoofari to have a good time! The Valley’s biggest fundraiser of the year, Zoofari 2016, is here! Help the Gladys Porter Zoo continue to inspire, educate and captivate the multitudes of children in the Rio Grande Valley by attending Zoofari ’16. Join us for a party with a bunch of peacocks during this gala affair. Proceeds will be set aside for a major renovation of the Patty Gorges Small World, children’s interactive animal encounter area and nursery.
The proposed renovation will feature an enhanced, naturalistic, Meerkat Motel and Fox Den – with pop-up viewing tubes to bring children up-close-and-personal to our mob of meerkats. The renovation will also have an enhanced children’s interactive animal encounter and nursery for Zoo babies.
