This Backstage Pass takes you behind the scenes with the Gorilla keepers to learn how they care for the Gorillas and to toss some treats into the troop. Children 16 or younger must be accompanied by an adult.
Restrictions: Backstage pass holders should be at least eight years old and must be at least 5 feet tall to feed the gorillas. The height requirement is based on issues of safety. People need to be 5 feet tall in order to see over the barrier separating them from the Gorillas. Individuals who do not meet this height requirement may attend this program. They will be able to see the Gorillas fed, meet the keepers and watch a Gorilla training session.
Society member passes available for a donation of $79 per person. Non-member passes available for $89 per person. All, or nearly all of this donation is tax deductible as a gift to to the NC Zoo Society, a private non-profit. Purchase tickets here -- only two spaces remain.
