Run like a lion at ZooZoom!

Proceeds from the 2016 ZooZoom will go towards animal care and enrichment. Feeding animals and keeping them occupied can be a difficult and expensive task. In order to keep their minds and skills sharp a variety of enrichments need to be made daily. Enrichments emulate foraging for food and the use of skills that would be necessary in the wild. More than 450 animals call the Sacramento Zoo home; help fill their bellies and minds.

The Costume Contest is back!!!

Come dressed up to ZooZoom in your favorite animal costume. It's a family friendly event so only appropriate costumes will be allowed. At the starting line at 7:45 a.m. one winner will be chosen and presented with a special prize. Only ZooZoom registered participants are allowed in the costume contest. Also please note that certain costumes will be not allowed in the Sacramento Zoo after the event and you may be asked to remove it.
