Join Us To Celebrate Surapa’s Birthday!

The Buffalo Zoo’s elephant keepers invite you to celebrate the 32nd birthday of Surapa the elephant!

Join us on Saturday, January 31 at 11 a.m. as the elephant team treats both Jothi and Surapa to special birthday “cake” and enrichments. The birthday party will take place at the elephant barn. Doors will be opened so visitors can get a better look inside during the festivities (subject to change due to weather.) Guests can even sign an elephant-sized card for the birthday girl!

There will also be special elephant feeding encounters available on Saturday at 1:30 p.m. Sign up at the Zoo’s main entrance to participate. For $10 per person, you can feed an elephant and participate in a private keeper talk. Availability is limited.
