The Bronx Zoo is going wild for conservation this summer.
Now through Sept. 5, your family can catch the Wildlife Theater Players and its “Tales From Around the Globe” — skits that combine conservation and nature lessons with talking puppets and catchy tunes that are fun for all ages. The shows will be performed at the Wild Asia Plaza and the Fisher-Price Little People Discovery Stage in the Children’s Zoo.
Shows include “Journey to the Pond,” featuring Frankie the Frog, songs, puppets and a bubble game; “Passport to Conservation,” during which audience members learn about the rainforest of Africa and the pack ice of Antarctica; and “Butterfly Trek,” which relates how monarch butterflies travel from New York to Mexico, and back again, through songs, a game show and a butterfly dance.
Catch all three!
“Tales From Around the Globe” at the Bronx Zoo [2300 Southern Blvd. at Boston Road in Belmont, (718) 220-5103], now through Sept. 5. Daily at the Wild Asia Plaza, every half hour from 11 am to 4 pm, except at 1 pm, and weekends at the Fisher-Price Little People Discovery Stage in the Children’s Zoo, every 20 minutes.
