Annual Boo at the Zoo and Ascarium Celebrations at the WCS Zoos and Aquarium

New York – Rebecca, a Hamadryas baboon, carries her son Azizi on her back while she holds a piece of pumpkin.  Animals get treats too at Boo at the Zoo at the Wildlife Conservation Society’s Prospect Park Zoo – the spooky Halloween celebration includes haunted attractions, a costume parade, face painting, music, magic, and Halloween themed enrichment for the animals.
WCS’s Bronx, Queens, and Prospect Park Zoos are holding their annual Boo at the Zoo, and the New York Aquarium is holding its annual Halloween Ascarium events on select weekends throughout October.  Dates and details are available on each facility’s website.
Boo at the Zoo and Ascarium at all WCS wildlife parks are presented by Pepsi with supporting sponsor CLEAR.

The Wildlife Conservation Society saves wildlife and wild places worldwide. We do so through science, global conservation, education and the management of the world's largest system of urban wildlife parks, led by the flagship Bronx Zoo. Together these activities change attitudes towards nature and help people imagine wildlife and humans living in harmony. WCS is committed to this mission because it is essential to the integrity of life on Earth.
