Audubon Supper Club

Audubon Supper Club:
Dine with the Elephants

April's Supper Club celebrates Audubon Zoo’s elephants.

WHEN
Wednesday, April 8, 2020

6 PM - 9 PM

WHERE
Audubon Zoo
Cooper Plaza/Asian Domain

EVENT DETAILS
Guests will enjoy an exclusive meet and greet with Audubon animal care staff and learn about the Zoo’s three female elephants: Jean, Surapa and Jothi. Following the tour, a four-course dinner will be served in the Zoo’s iconic Cooper Plaza, amongst the breathtaking bronze elephant fountain designed by Artist Jocelyn Russell.

A ticket to the Supper Club supports Audubon’s conservation work helping fund work across the globe fighting extinction and preserving the local ecosystem. Members of the Association of Zoos and Aquariums (AZA), including Audubon, are very involved in elephant conservation efforts, investing more than $10.5 million towards elephant conservation between 2012 and 2016 alone. Asian elephants are one of the Signature Species of the AZA SAFE: Saving Animals From Extinction program, which combines the expertise and resources of AZA partners to save Asian elephants from extinction. AZA members are also strong supporters of 96 Elephants, which advocates for African elephants and educates the public about the dangers they face in the wild.

Also, all skaters will be required to sign a liability waiver prior to skating. Guardians must sign for minors (those under 18 years of age on skate date).
