Closed for Recycling November 18
The Philadelphia Zoo will be closed on Tuesday, November 18
for a Zoo-wide recycling and repurposing day, as Zoo staff collect and sort items from across the Zoo’s campus and storage areas. This in-service day has been established as part of our own “walk the talk” preparation, as we approach our 2015 initiative “Year of the Gorilla” during which we will engage our guests in a focus on recycling as it relates to climate change and the survival of gorillas and other species. The Zoo will reopen with regular hours on Wednesday, November 19.
