Are the treats orangutan-friendly?
All treats offered at the Wild Zoo Halloween presented by STAR Financial Bank are palm-oil free or are manufactured by companies that are members of the Roundtable on Sustainable Palm Oil (RSPO). The sustainable production of palm oil is crucial to the survival of orangutans, because their rain forest habitat is often destroyed to create poorly managed and unsustainable palm oil plantations. Download a Palm Oil Shopping Guide to help you make orangutan-friendly choices when you shop.
Is the whole zoo open?
Wild Zoo Halloween Presented by STAR Financial Bank activities are located in the Central Zoo and portions of the Australian Adventure. The African Journey and Indonesian Rain Forest will not be open during the Wild Zoo Halloween.
