Holidoo, the all-natural gift that keeps on giving

Zoo offers seasonal blend of poop-ular Zoo Doo compost during the holidays!

WHAT: This year, the Grinch is heading to Pooville to steal his very own batch of holidoo. The seasonally blended compost was specially crafted by Woodland Park Zoo’s own Dr. Doo, aka the “Princess of Poo,” the “GM of BM” or the “Grand Poopah.” Holidoo consists of compost and bedding, featuring a rich blend of species feces contributed by the zoo’s non-primate herbivores such as hippos, giraffes, mountain goats, tapirs and more.

Our Sound, Our Salmon's Flotilla

Grab your kayaks and canoes. Reserve your spot on the ferry. The Our Sound, Our Salmon campaign is hosting its first ever event on September 16th in the Rich Passage.

We care about stopping the expansion of Atlantic salmon fish farms in a big way, so we decided our first event should be just as big. Our Sound, Our Salmon's Flotilla will be a protest, but no ordinary protest.
