Join the celebration! Our young female chimp Maria, is celebrating her 10th birthday this New Year’s Eve, and you can be a part of the celebration. The Greater Sacramento chapter of the American Association of Zoo Keepers (AAZK) will be selling hand or footprints of Maria to benefit Chimpanzee conservation.
Purchase yours at the Member and Visitor Services office and either write a personalized message to her or decorate it! Then come back on her birthday to see it strung up around the exhibit. She will also be tearing apart a paper mache birthday cake and will be enjoying many other birthday treats. Do your part to help wild chimps while celebrating Maria’s 10th birthday!
NOTICE: posted 12/29/10
Maria and the rest of the troop will be let out into their exhibit at 10 am on Friday, December 31st to enjoy the special treats.
