Event Navigation

Our Hippo, Tadpole, is turning 40 years old next week!

In celebration of this exciting milestone birthday, we want to get everyone involved in the week-long festivities with an art contest in honor of Tadpole!

Calling all artists! Drawings, paintings, sculpture, and mixed media of Tadpole! We want to see your talent!

Artwork will need to be dropped off at the Zoo’s Membership office by 5pm on Wednesday, October 17!

Judging will be done by the Birmingham Zoo’s Chapter of the American Association of Zoo Keeper’s (AAZK)!

Stay tuned for more info and event dates for Tadpole’s birthday week celebration.
