ONLINE RUN FOR THE WILD at Bronx Zoo

ONLINE RUN FOR THE WILD

  • Sep. 26, 2020, 7am-12pm
  • Bronx Zoo
  • 2300 Southern Blvd., Bronx
  • All Ages
  • Registration fee $20-$35

Each year, the WCS Run for the Wild raises awareness of the threats facing wildlife while fundraising to help WCS's conservation work at the Bronx Zoo and around the world. This year the 5k race will be virtual instead of at the Bronx Zoo. Together we'll Run for the Wild in our neighborhoods, on local trails and tracks, or even on treadmills at home. Runners, walkers, and wildlife supporters are invited to participate and/or support a participant. Rescheduled from 4/25.

  • The Bronx Zoo is open year-round. We close on the following holidays: Thanksgiving Day, Christmas Day, New Year's Day, and Martin Luther King Day. Spring and summer are naturally high-attendance seasons, but we encourage guests to visit during fall and winter as well. When the weather cools off, many animals are more active and you'll encounter fewer crowds. 

    With 265 acres of wildlife habitats and attractions, it's difficult to see the entire zoo in one day. For shorter visits, take a two-hour tour of our most popular exhibits, like Tiger Mountain, Himalayan Highlands, Congo Gorilla Forest, and World of Reptiles. During the warmer months, guests with young children can begin their visit at the Children's Zoo and then stroll Astor Court to meet our sea lions and visit Madagascar! In wintertime, warm up in JungleWorld, our giant indoor rainforest habitat.
