Our Ambassador Animals

Ambassador animals are living creatures. Therefore, for their safety, comfort and well-being we are not permitted to be in rooms or venues with other animals present. For outdoor venues, weather conditions will determine the species available for that program. Due to the needs/health of our animals we cannot guarantee a specific animal species for your program. Ambassador animals can only be offsite (including travel time) for a maximum amount of hours.



Your party date must be booked at least 2 weeks in advance and must be confirmed with the Education Department to insure there is no conflict in scheduling. Please call (609) 465-6832 or email education@cmczoo.com for more information, check on available dates, or if you have any questions.
Travel fees will be added for out of county residents hosting their parties off site. Travel distance must
 not be more than 1 hours time 
or 60 miles from
the Zoo. 
Not sure if you're too far away . . . 
just give us a call. (609) 465-6832

Mileage will be tallied and added to your reservation following the Education Department's approval of your Party.

Cater your party with us!
