Exclusive Keeper Chats

April 2, 9 and 16 at 11 a.m. and 1 p.m.

Enhance your ABQ BioPark Zoo visit during Great Ape-ril. Support apes and get to spend time with a zookeeper while they give you a special public-side tour of  gorillas, orangutans and chimpanzees.  All proceeds from the tours go to help great apes in the wild.

This special chat will consist of a public-side walk around gorillas and orangutans, a peak at the gorilla Bachelor Pad, and a visit to chimpanzees. 

All proceeds go to help great apes in the wild. Your donations support Great Ape Survival Partnership, which helps gorillas and chimps in Africa, and Orangutan Outreach, which help orangutans and siamangs in Southeast Asia. Join a keeper who will talk to you about how we care for our great apes at the ABQ BioPark and explain how all of us can save great apes in the wild. All attendees will also receive a special gift bag.


Educational booths included with admission. Exclusive keeper chats are $40 each and can be purchased at HoldMyTicket.
