Salju’s 1st Birthday Celebration | Saturday, Feb 1 & Sunday, Feb 2

Baby white-handed gibbon Salju is celebrating her first birthday and we’re inviting YOU to celebrate with her at the Zoo! Enjoy a special birthday enrichment presentation at 11:00 am, and learn more about white-handed gibbons and their plight in the wild. 

White-handed gibbons are a threatened species due to habitat loss and hunting, and they are found mainly in tropical rainforests in Southeast Asia, where palm oil production is on the rise. From 11:00 am – 1:00 pm visitors will learn what they can do to bring change to the palm oil industry by supporting companies that use traceable, sustainable palm oil.

In lieu of birthday gifts, Salju is requesting donations to our Wildlife Conservation Fund which helps other threatened species survive and thrive. Contribute in-person at Salju’s birthday party, or online:
