Ambassador Animal Meet and Greets

January 29, 2019


Are you thinking about visiting the zoo with a small group of friends or family? Are you wanting to do something special during your visit? 

Whether you have just been dying to touch a chinchilla, see an owl up close, or want to surprise a friend or family member with a unique gift – an ambassador animal meet and greet is the perfect thing to add to your zoo visit! Small groups of 8 or less will get to interact with up to three (3) of our ambassador animals, with an included unique and educational talk by a zoo educator about each animal.

Reptiles, birds, mammals, amphibians, and even INSECTS are a part of our ambassador animal program here at the Utica Zoo, and they are waiting to meet you! Visit our list of Education and Ambassador Animals to choose your meet n’ greet animal!
