The El Paso Zoological Society invites you to

Wild at Heart:

Valentine’s Day with a wild twist!

This nighttime 21+ event is sure to bring out your wild side!

Join us, February 12th  for Wild at Heart!

It is sure to inspire the animal in you.

This exciting evening experience will transform the Zoo into a unique romantic atmosphere filled with photo opportunities, themed lighting, and so much more! Upon gaining admission, food, flowers, chocolates, games, live music and local craft beer await our guests. Of course, we can’t have a Zoo event without animals.

Our Education Specialists will be on hand to teach our guests about some of the interesting mating courtships found in nature, as well as some of the Birds of Prey found in our borderland.

Talk with our Zoo Keepers about the animals that call Africa their home, like our African Lions, Meerkats and African Painted Dogs.
