Animals After Dark

Fundraiser presented by Phoenix Zoo Auxiliary

When night falls at the Phoenix Zoo…things really start to get wild! Animals After Dark, An Aerial Experience is a humorous sneak peek into the imagined lives of our animals after the sun sets. Get ready for a unique evening of thrilling aerial acrobatics by the performance troupe Atelotorque.



Phoenix Zoo conservation scientists raise and breed species at the Zoo’s Arthur L. and Elaine V. Johnson Conservation Center for release to the wild and/or to help understand their biology and reproduction. We also conduct research and participate in field work as part of broader recovery efforts with our partners.
