Safari #72: Franklin Park's Sex at the Zoo

In celebration of Valentine's Day last week, my sweetie and I attended a lecture at the Franklin Park Zoo.  You may be thinking, "A lecture? How romantic". 

Well, as a matter of fact, it was.

The Sex at the Zoo lecture, held in the Tropical Forest Pavilion,  highlighted the love rituals certain species use to attract (and retain) a mate.

Before heading into the classroom for the lecture, we were free to stroll around within the Pavilion itself enjoying the exhibits. Representatives from the Samuel Adams Brewery, Barefoot Wine, and Cabot Cheese were dotted along the way offering beer, wine, and hors d'oeuvres. Zoo staff were also on hand to answer questions. The lecture was informative, enjoyable, and unbelievably hilarious. 

The event served to remind us that even animals will do anything for love, just as we should.

My Tips:
  • Details. The event costs $25. There were two lecture times available allowing you enough time to tour the Pavilion, enjoy treats, and attend the lecture.
  • Plan for Next Year.  Visit the events section Franklin Park Zoo website for information about similar programming and just before Valentine's Day 2014.
