July 19th – 20th - Cheetahs and Birds

Take advantage of the chance to meet some of SCBI’s critically endangered birds, from tiny shy Guam rails with modest brown feathers to large, often loud, cranes showing off their spectacular plumage. Then moving from feathers to fur, meet the cheetahs, who too are prone to vocalizing with an astonishing array of purrs, hisses and “wuffs”, while you learn about their specially designed facility.

August 9th and 10th – Cheetahs and Hoofstock

And then learn about real prey animals with horns and hooves, teeth and antlers, who are every bit as fascinating as their predators – the devious oryx, the arrogant horses, the skitish Eld’s deer and the adorable western tufted deer.

August 16th – 17th – Maned wolves and Birds

Meet the crepuscular Chrysocyon brachyurus, a fruit eating canid, commonly called maned wolf, but which are not real wolves, but “foxes on stilts”.

Also, meet the crepuscular Chrysocyon brachyurus, a fruit eating canid, commonly called maned wolf, but which are not real wolves, but “foxes on stilts”.
