Date When Celebrated : Always April 8th

Today is Zoo Lovers Day. Zoos have been around for thousands of years. A zoo was originally called a "menagerie". In some form, menageries have been around since ancient times. The earliest recording was around 1500 B.C.!!

People, young and old, enjoy visiting the zoo. Where else can you see lions and tigers and bears all in one place. And, elephants, too!

It is easy to celebrate this special day. First, go visit a zoo today. Bring the whole family. Bring Grandma and Grandpa, too. Secondly, open the purse strings and make a donation in support of your local zoo.
