Woodland Park Zoo WildLights

Woodland Park Zoo WildLights

What do a roaring lion, diving penguin, and flying bald eagle have in common? You can find them all (and many more) as holiday light displays at Woodland Park Zoo WildLights. With more than 600,000 energy-efficient LED lights, Woodland Park Zoo WildLights is a great way to brighten the holiday season. And it’s different from anything else you’ll find in Seattle. The animal-themed displays include a family of gorillas (holding a banana, of course), a bear trying to catch leaping salmon in a river, and elephants, a hippopotamus, and giraffes gathering around a watering hole (with sounds of Africa echoing around you). Listen |¬†Woodland Park Zoo WildLights Holidays lights also line the paths at Woodland Park Zoo WildLights, recreating wild places and creating a real winter wonderland to walk through. On top of the holiday lights, Woodland Park Zoo WildLights also features pictures with Santa, fake snowball fights in the Snowmazium, carolers, and real reindeer.

Lion Cubs at Woodland Park Zoo in Seattle

Lion Cubs at Woodland Park Zoo in Seattle

How can you not love these little guys? Meet Tandie, Gandia, and Mandla. They’re the new lion cubs at Woodland Park Zoo in Seattle. Born on October 24, 2014, the new lion cubs are just getting used to their home at Woodland Park Zoo. They were only brought out on an intermittent basis at first, but now you can see the triplets everyday (weather permitting) from 9:30 a.m. to 3 p.m. in the zoo’s African Savanna zone. All three lion cubs at Woodland Park Zoo are boys. Tandie means ‘fire’ in one of the languages from the lions’ native range in South Africa, while Gandia means ‘clever,’ and Mandla means ‘power/strength.’ The dad Xerxes and mom Adia round out the happy lion pride. NOTE: Woodland Park Zoo has seen no shortage of lion cubs lately. Do you remember these cubs? They were born in 2013. The three have since been sent to different zoos as part of a lion conservation program. That’s probably what’s going to happen to these...

New Cheetahs at Woodland Park Zoo

New Cheetahs at Woodland Park Zoo

I’ve always dreamed of going on a safari in Africa and seeing elephants, lions, and giraffes in the wild. Unfortunately, I don’t have a trip like that in my immediate future. That means I turn to Woodland Park Zoo to enjoy these incredible creatures, and they just added two new animals to the mix — cheetahs! Woodland Park Zoo¬†(601 N. 59th St. in Seattle) is now a temporary home to two female cheetahs named Missy and Liz. They’ve come to Seattle as part of the Species Survival Plan, which is a conservation breeding program among zoos (according to Woodland Park Zoo). Missy and Liz are both 14 years old, so they’ve passed their breeding “prime” (although the two of them reared 15 cubs in the past). To make room for other younger cheetahs to breed at their permanent home in Oregon, the older cheetahs were moved here. NOTE: The cheetahs are only expected to be at Woodland Park Zoo for 6 to 18 months. The temporary exhibit opened to...

Woodland Park Zoo | Our Favorite Seattle Attraction

Woodland Park Zoo | Our Favorite Seattle Attraction

You can go to the top of the Space Needle 100 times, and the view (albeit stunning) is always the same. You can hop on The Great Wheel 50 times, and it’s the same ride over and over again. That’s not the case with Woodland Park Zoo in Seattle. The place is always changing (and animals are extremely unpredictable), so no trip to the zoo is ever the same twice. I’ll be honest: Woodland Park Zoo (map) is our favorite Seattle attraction. I get just as excited to visit the zoo as an adult as I did when I was a kid. It’s easily the greatest place around. Tove knows I enjoy Woodland Park Zoo so much that she bought me a membership for my birthday, and she plans on becoming a member next year. Yes, we LOVE the zoo. There’s a reason we love Woodland Park Zoo so much. It’s home to more than 1,100 animals, which represent almost 300 different species. The creatures range from tiny insects...
