It’s become an annual tradition for many of California’s zoos to celebrate winter holidays with illuminating lights experiences. While the zoo occupants and famous, star animals seen and photographed by millions don’t participate in most of these events, they are the beneficiaries who get the meals they require and top medical care in one of the world’s most desirable places to live (California). Granted, the animals don’t really have a choice as to their residency but some are being saved from extinction through zoo programs that help them stay alive & thrive!

From glitzy attractions to reindeer interactions, special crafts, overnight campouts and special animal feedings, California’s zoos offer fantastic family entertainment this Winter. If zoos move you, then buy memberships, gifts in their shops, and/or donate to help them.
