This includes transportation of the new animals, a new species-appropriate habitat, and ongoing conservation and education experiences focused on the new species, according to the zoo's website.

Pints for Preservation is taking place at the Niabi Zoo (13010 Niabi Zoo Road,
Coal Valley) on Friday, September 23rd, from 6-10 p.m.

Tickets for Pints for Preservation are on sale now. Here is how much a ticket cost:

  • Members - $45 (Buy a six-pack for $240 and save $30)
