What’s better than watching a historic moment at one of Buffalo’s most historic places? Join us at the Buffalo Zoo as we gather to watch the Total Solar Eclipse on Monday, April 8, 2024

Our Zoo offers a wide, open space, perfect for observing the sky without obstructions. Watch the sky’s transformation surrounded by the sounds and sights of our diverse animal kingdom. How will the animals react? Will the birds quiet down? Will the nocturnal animals stir? It’s a rare opportunity to observe animal behavior during such a unique natural event.

Any guests that visit the Zoo April 6-8 will receive a free pair of eclipse glasses upon entry. Please note only 500 pairs are available each day. Enjoy animal ambassador meet and greets with some of our most famous residents and join us for a presentation on Animal Behaviors During an Eclipse. Have the chance to create your own Solar Eclipse viewing box with our Education Team and learn about the safety steps to take during an Eclipse. (No preregistration is necessary; first come first serve. Activity available 10am-Noon on April 8, 2024).
