Take flight, El Paso! The El Paso Zoo Wildlife Amphitheater is a state-of-the-art facility that will be home a world-renowned free flight bird show, sure to amaze and inspire the El Paso community. Wings of the World shows will begin Saturday, December 17. Shows will take place at 12 p.m. and 2 p.m. on weekends and 2 p.m. on weekdays.
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!).
The Wildlife Amphitheater is one of the many exciting Quality of Life Bond projects that has now been completed. As part of the 2012 Quality of Life Bond program, The El Paso Zoo was approved for $50 million to complete a 10-year master plan that will allow the Zoo to continue to be an engaging place of discovery, a respected center for informal environmental education, a contributor to stewardship-based conservation action – and a destination for great fun!
