The Shrek Forever After Game

Play the Shrek Forever After game at the Santa Ana Zoo
With the new Shrek Forever After movie coming out, we've got a new scavenger hunt game to add to your Zoo fun...

Here's how it works:

1- Come to the Zoo during regular hours and each of the kids gets a game card at the ticket booth.

2- As you adventure around the Zoo, look for the special notes around the Zoo and find the answers to questions about Shrek's animal friends.

3- Answer the 4 questions on the card.

4- Take your completed card to the Treetop Toys gift store and if it's correct, you'll get Shrek goodies from the people at Dreamworks.  It's that easy!

Visit the Santa Ana Zoo and play the Shrek Forever After game, and go see Shrek 4 in theaters beginning May 21!

(All prizes are provided by Dreamworks.  Offer valid only while supplies last.)

Twin Golden Lion Tamarins Born at the Santa Ana Zoo!

The Santa Ana Zoo in Prentice Park is pleased to announce the birth of twin golden lion tamarins on April 27, 2010. Golden lion tamarins are a rare golden-orange monkey from the Atlantic coast of Brazil. Weighing less than 1 pound as adults, the babies tip the scale at about 1/8th of a pound!

Zoos have worked together for several decades on the conservation of this species that now numbers approximately 1,200 animals in the wild. Captive breeding, habitat restoration and conservation, conservation education and reintroductions into the wild are all part of the international effort to protect this species. These births are a great boost to the conservation program.

The new twin babies are on view for the public daily between 10:00AM and 4:00PM at the Santa Ana Zoo in Prentice Park, 1801 Chestnut Avenue, Santa Ana, CA 92701. 

Admission is $8.00 for adults, $5.00 for seniors and children 3-12 years. Children under three are free. For more information call 714-836-4000 or visit our website at:
