Event list (Aug. 23, 2013)

Sedgwick County Zoo’s first female gorilla has moved in, and visitors can see her now. Kivu, a western lowland gorilla, arrived in late May and has been getting to know her new keepers and surroundings. Kivu, who is 35, was recently introduced to her exhibit mate, Matt, 20. They’ve been spending time getting to know each other in behind-the-scenes areas and now are in the public indoor space. Eventually, they will be introduced to the outdoor exhibit area. The zoo is open daily from 8:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. daily. Admission is $13.95, or $11.95 for ages 62 and over, $8.95 for ages 3 to 11, and free for ages 2 and under.
