It's 3pm. Do you know what the flamingoes are doing?
Join Atlas Obscura and the Bronx Zoo for a one-of-a-kind sneak peek into the world of curious birds! During this hour-long live online event, you'll get a chance to be digitally up-close and personal with a number of rare and incredible birds. We'll visit the Bronx Zoo's flock of flamingos, and see the Inca terns dive to catch their fish (and show off their mustaches). Our penguins will swim by, and our owl might even come by for a "hoo-llo"! During this virtual experience you will meet one of the Bronx Zoo's Ornithology team (i.e. a bird keeper), and you'll have a chance to ask them questions live in the moment. Find out what it takes to care for these fantastic birds, what working at the Bronx Zoo is like, and the conservation work they do to protect wildlife and wild places. And yes, there will be trivia. Hint: look up what a flock of flamingos is called!
So grab your favorite friends and family and flock together for this unforgettable experience, no matter where you are!
The Bronx Zoo, the Wildlife Conservation Society’s flagship park, opened on November 8, 1899. Since then, the zoo has created a unique window into the natural world for city dwellers in the heart of the Bronx — and serves as a springboard and hub for conservation efforts across the entire planet. The Bronx Zoo is home to over 700 different species of animals and covers 265 acres, making it one of the largest urban zoos.
