Learn about the 23 species of vultures in the world, 14 of which are currently threatened, at International Vulture Awareness Day at the Saint Louis Zoo.
Family activities take place outside the Bird House from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m., where you'll learn how vultures catch their prey, compare your "armspan" with the wingspan of a vulture, hear keeper chats and observe the birds as they receive enrichment from keepers, stop by the "vulture restaurant" to see what raptors eat at the Zoo, take a selfie in the life-size vulture nest and more. Activities are free. Zoo admission is free.
