Candy With a Cause at ZooBoo 2018

Did you know that all candy distributed at ZooBoo 2018 is palm oil sustainable?

Palm oil, which is grown in tropical rainforests, is an ingredient in many types of candy. The uncontrolled clearing of rainforests for palm oil plantations has led to widespread loss of habitats for endangered species, including orangutans and the Siamang Gibbons found here at the Great Plains Zoo. 

Do your part to preserve wildlife by purchasing candy that is palm oil free, or made with sustainable palm oil.  Check out suggestions for wildlife-friendly treats!

  • Love this zoo! Great place to get a walk in and the animals are everywhere! The museum/indoor part is very educational too. Has a lot of shade for when it's hot out. Very clean. Friendly staff.

  • A really great zoo featuring some exotic species and I liked the focus on conservancy/breeding to preserve species for the rhinos. The safari area's cheetah was awesome to see. During a week day going, it was quite open to walk around and enjoy without too much crowding.

  • The museum gives you a break from the sun on hot summer days and has a great selection of animal exhibits from around the world. ¬†The zoo keeps growing and adding new animal habitats or improving existing ones. ¬†Membership offers reciprocal benefits to other zoos around the country.
