In addition, the theater will be a place for guests to engage and learn in a whole new way through animal encounters, educational programs, concerts, and much more!

The Wildlife Amphitheater will also be home to the Wings of the World bird show, sponsored by Paul and Alejandra Foster. Wings of the World is a world-renowned free flight bird show and will be a one-of-a-kind opportunity for Zoo guests to experience the majesty of animals as they swoop, soar, and dive through the air. The show will be led by Joe Krathwohl – known as The Birdman® – who has dedicated himself to the care and preservation of birds and has developed the largest free flight bird show in the world (and the only show featuring trained condors and cassowary!).
