Join us in celebrating the beautiful ocelot of the Rio Grande Valley at Ocelot Conservation Day! The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, the Friends of Laguna Atascosa National Wildlife Refuge and the Gladys Porter Zoo are hosting a special day to highlight ocelots, the small, wild cats native to South Texas. There will be a variety of fun ocelot related activities for families to enjoy.

On the main stage we will have performances an ocelot from the Cincinnati Zoo’s Cat Ambassador Program. Plus, mention ocelot at the admission gate and get a 20% discount off an adult or child admission. The event is free with regular paid admission or Zoo membership.
