Backstage Pass

Join us for an amazing opportunity to feel like a Zoo insider, as you learn about our world-famous animal ambassadors directly from their dedicated trainers at the San Diego Zoo. 

This up-close experience provides a unique view of some of our wildest friends here at the Zoo. After meeting our trainers and animals, we hope you will be inspired to join us in the fight to end extinction.

As an added bonus, you will have an opportunity to feed one of our animal ambassadors. Bring your camera for some amazing photos! 

Meet us at Backstage Pass for this interactive and educational program, and learn how we train and enrich the lives of our animals at the San Diego Zoo!
