ZooLights is going green!
LED (light-emitting diode) lights consume far less energy than standard light bulbs, leading to greatly reduced energy costs. They also require far less energy to manufacture than other light sources, reducing their environmental impact even further.
ZooLights is also powered by SRP EarthWise Energy, a more environmentally friendly way to produce electricity. EarthWise Energy helps keep our Valley clean by producing energy from sun, wind, the earth’s heat and flowing water in our canals.
ZooLights is an evening holiday event that does not offer the same animal viewing opportunities as a daytime visit. Please consider coming back for a daytime visit to see our new orangutan exhibit!
Beginning November 24, 2011 to January 8, 2012 from 6pm to 10pm nightly
