COLUMBUS, GA (WTVM) – Zoo Atlanta is offering free admission for mothers for Mother’s Day on Sunday, May 14.

Animal mothers will also enjoy the Mother’s Day themed event. The Zoo’s many animal mothers will

find their habitats bedecked with decorations, special foods, and other treats. Mother’s Day is one of many annual

spotlights on Zoo Atlanta’s robust animal enrichment program, in place for all species year-round. Enrichment, which may take the form of objects, novel foods or activities, is designed to stimulate animals’ natural behaviors while promoting their well-being.

Zoo Atlanta will also observe one Zoo mother’s birthday on Mother’s Day. Madu the Sumatran orangutan, who turns 34 on May 13, has adopted four orangutan infants over the years, including 2-year-old Keju, who arrived at the Zoo in 2015. Madu and her group will enjoy birthday surprises at 2:30 p.m. at Orangutan Habitat.

The Mother’s Day discount is only for Sunday, May 14, and may not be combined with any other discount. Mothers do not require a ticket if accompanied by a child or adult with a regularly-priced ticket,

Zoo Atlanta Members, who already enjoy free admission year-round, may also treat mothers to a Zoo day on Mother’s Day. Members may bring up to two mothers at no charge, provided mothers are accompanied by an individual named on the Membership.
