Take a walk on the wild side while you learn about the many endangered animals at the Kansas City Zoo's Endangered Species celebration on Saturday, May 19 from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Zoo Docents will talk about the many things that you can do at home to help out our animal friends. At 10:30 a.m, don't miss seeing the cheetahs - GiGi, Claire, and Sadie - chase the lure at the end of a motorized track. It moves fast, but these girls can run 60+ mph, so it's fast-paced, exiting animal action at the Cheetah Exhibit near the African Marketplace, weather depending. Activities are included in regular admission; free to Friends of the Zoo members. .
