Ever wonder what the animals are up to after the sun goes down? Join us after-hours when Zoo Atlanta closes for an evening adventure for the whole family! Tour the Zoo at dusk, use night-vision technology, search for animals that you wouldn’t normally see during the daylight hours, and enjoy special activities that vary from season to season. Don’t miss this wild evening exploring the Zoo!
Time: 6:30 p.m. – 9 p.m.
THEME: Wild Technology
Experience the Zoo in a new way on this guided after-hours tour! Join the adventure as we explore the Zoo using the latest research technology, and discover what the animals do when the humans are away!
On this tour, participants will have the opportunity to get hands-on with some of the technology used to study animals in zoos and in the wild. Our Zoo Educators will introduce participants to Forward Looking InfraRed technology, trail cameras, night-vision scopes, radio telemetry, and Passive Integrated Transponders. Participants will learn how these tools are used by humans to better understand and help animals.
