According to a recent Facebook post, the Roger Williams Park Zoo will bring the Zoo to you with a virtual celebration of Zoobilee on Thursday, September 17 from 7 to 8 pm.

“This event is now free and open to all! Visit our Facebook page on September 17th and tune in to join us for a festive, socially distanced party featuring special behind-the-scenes animal encounters (including a peek at Beany, our new baby two-toed sloth!), important messages from our most valued stakeholders and other fun surprises and performances.

Every year Zoobilee raises much-needed funds for conservation and education programs, and this year, we need your support more than ever! We hope you'll join us here for a rockin' good time!

One of the most exciting parts of every Zoobilee is our annual online auction! From unique Zoo experiences to beautiful artwork, there is something for everyone!”

You can view the online auction HERE.

If you are interested in becoming a sponsor or donating to the auction, please send an email to Zoobilee@rwpzoo.org or call the Development Department at (401) 785-3510 ext. 453"

Honestly, I'll tune-in just for the new baby two-toed sloth. Beany is absolutely adorable and I love the story behind the name. This little one was born in May and has already stolen the heart of everyone who meets him.
