GVZOO'S 44TH ANNIVERSARY CELEBRATION & NEW LEMUR HOUSE

Date: August 16th 2014

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

GVZOO’S 44th ANNIVERSARY CELEBRATION & NEW LEMUR HOUSE

Aldergrove – Come join the party TODAY!! Since our inception in August 1970 as the World Wide Game Farm and our first animal Dennis the “Llama” – many improvements have been made over the years. We also went through several names changes until 1999, when we became what we are today which is the Greater Vancouver Zoo.

The accredited Zoo’s role in the community and the rest of the world has changed dramatically over the years. We are extremely pleased with the progress to date and look forward to continuing to promote understanding of the impact of human activities and the actions that need to be taken to protect our wild inhabitants.

Today’s celebration include our interesting and fun interpretive talks, educational scavenger hunt (where you can learn a little more about your favorite animal) and a finger painting contest (**both you can enter to win a family day pass to the Zoo), anniversary cake at 12:15 pm, bouncy castle, obstacle course, slide, and children performances from:

  • Patricia Dunphy at 11:30 am and 2:00 pm
  • The Flying Ritas' at 1:30 pm and 2:30 pm (including a puppet show)

Also we are celebrating the opening of our new Lemur House which provide access via a tunnel to the 3 lemur islands (with a special feeding time for the lemurs at 12:30 pm). For further details visit www.gvzoo.com.

Come join the fun and continue to increase your understanding of nature and the wonderful world of animals!
