ZOO OFFERINGS & OCCASIONS “We had the most beautiful wedding possible. We are so thankful for the opportunity to get married at the Louisville Zoo! The weather was beautiful and the animals provided an amazing and energetic addition.” Say “I Do” at the Zoo Caitlin and Matt Goodwyn, May 2016 © Christy Walls Photography Eco Flip-Flop Animals Be part of the pollution solution and join us on a flip-flop safari! Every year, thousands of flip-flops are washing up onto the East African coast creating an environmental disaster. This pollution not only spoils the natural beauty of the beaches and oceans, but the rubber soles are adding to the plastic waste in marine ecosystems. This pollution obstructs turtle hatchlings from reaching the sea and ends up being swallowed by fish and other animals. A creative team of artisans in Nairobi decided to transform these discarded flip-flops into elephants, giraffes, lions, rhinos, dolphins, sharks, turtles and more. These craftsmen work with over 100 individuals to create colorful masterpieces to bring smiles to those closest to you and an important message about marine conservation and our human footprint. Stop in the Louisville Zoo Main Gift Shop on your next visit and buy one or several of these fun, colorful one-of-a-kind pieces. You can set them out as a conversation piece or even purchase a keychain work of art! Remember, Louisville Zoo members receive a 10% discount. Holidays are just around the corner Don’t forget to book your meeting or holiday event by the end of the year to receive a complimentary hot apple cider or hot chocolate addon to your beverage order!
