Buffalo Zoo Snooze News

Have you ever wondered what happens to the animals when everyone has gone for the day and the park has closed? Discover the Buffalo Zoo as the sun goes down through a very special program called the Buffalo Zoo Snooze. Zoo Snoozes are held on Friday and Saturday nights from 6 p.m. until 9 a.m. the following morning.

The Buffalo Zoo has added two new themes to their overnight snooze programs. Attendants now have a choice between two new snooze themes in addition to the current “Ecostation Adventure” and “Rainforest Immersion” programs. 

The new “You Run the Zoo” snooze is a career-based program that shows what goes into running a zoo. Learn about how your hobbies and talents can be applied to a variety of zoo-related jobs, from designing a new enclosure for one of our education animals, to drawing up educational signs and advertising your new enclosure to the “public”. 
The “Solving the Mystery of the Vanishing Animal” theme focuses on endangered species and the many threats to current populations of wild animals. The group will split into two teams, both of which are given an animal mystery to solve. Follow the clues and track your animal to learn about what it eats, where it lives and discover why it is endangered. 

The brand new “You Run the Zoo” and “Solving the Mystery of the Vanishing Animal” snooze themes are now open for booking! Call 995-6128 for scheduling. For a complete listing of Zoo Snooze offerings at the Buffalo Zoo, visit us online.
