Backstage With Lions
When you go backstage with us, you become a partner in the Zoo’s work to protect and conserve wildlife. Strictly limited to 6 people. Guest must be 12 years old or older to attend. Under 16 must be with a parent.
Enter the Lions' den to see how the keepers manage the lions, bring them in at night, feed them and train them to participate in their own care. A wondrous glimpse into some of the most challenging work zookeepers undertake.

All or nearly all of the cost is tax-deductible as a donation to the NC Zoo Society, a 501(c)3 non-profit organization. Funds are used to support the Zoo's field conservation programs.
