Bring the whole family, and treat the mom in your life with a trip to the Zoo! The American Association of Zookeepers (AAZK) is hosting their fourth annual Missing Orangutan Mother’s (M.O.M.) Day book and bake sale on Saturday, May 12 from 9 am to 3 pm at the orangutan exhibit.
This event brings public awareness to the plight of orangutans in the wild and how they are excellent mothers. All of the baked goods are palm oil free and the proceeds will support orphaned wild orangutans.
By participating, you’re not making a mom feel special, you’re contributing to an excellent cause. There will be activities for kids, treats given to the orangutans throughout the day and a display of paintings made by our very own Zoo animals! Hope to see you out there!
