Marvelous Manatee Tour (Coming Winter 2019!)
Join us on a journey down to Manatee Springs, where your group will go behind-the-scenes to receive a closer look at the Zoo's Florida Manatee residents!
The Cincinnati Zoo and Botanical Garden is one of two U.S. Zoos outside of Florida that participate in the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service’s Manatee Rescue, Rehabilitation, and Release Program.
Behind-the-scenes, you will learn all about the manatee program, and their journey to be re-released into their native habitat. The rehabilitation process requires a hands-off approach, so you will not have the opportunity to touch or feed the manatees during this experience.
You will have the opportunity to learn all about our manatees, the rehabilitation process, and receive a VIP viewing of these curious creatures. Make sure to bring your camera, because you are encouraged to take your own photos on this experience.
