• Do you know why Halloween is an orangutan’s favorite holiday at the Philadelphia Zoo? Be sure to visit the Sustainable Palm Zone during Boo at the Zoo to find out.

• Take a walk through the Philadelphia Zoo’s not-so-scary Extinction Graveyard to learn about the extinction of species around the world. You’ll be shocked to see that some of your favorite creatures could be extinct in the wild in 15 years.

• Enjoy festive fall offerings throughout the Zoo: hot apple cider, Children’s’ Halloween Sippers filled with a Witch’s Brew, reusable Boo at the Zoo trick-or-treat bags and much more! Pick up a Boo at the Zoo map at the entrance for all the details.

• Set out on a Scarecrow Scavenger Hunt and discover your favorite animals in the form of life-size scarecrows.
