Limited to 10 people
When you go backstage with us, you become a partner in the Zoo’s work to protect and conserve wildlife. This Backstage Pass takes you into the Aviary to see the birds when they first wake up, to be with the keepers when the birds get their first meal of the day and to see the Aviary's hidden work areas: where the keepers prepare the birds' food and keep track of all the flocks.
The Aviary Backstage Pass is available to Zoo Society Members for a donation of $65 per person. Non-Society Members may obtain an aviary backstage pass for $75 per person. Purchase tickets here
All, or nearly all, of this donation is tax deductible as a gift to the NC Zoo Society, a 501(c)3 non-profit organization that raises money for the North Carolina Zoo. Suitable for children 10 and older.
Thank you for finding a fun and educational way to support the Zoo's conservation efforts.
