Saying Goodbye to Maya

Date: Feb 1 to 2, 2014 9:00 AM - 5:00 PM
Maya the jaguar has been a Palm Beach Zoo guest favorite since her birth five years ago. With her diva-ish personality and stunning good looks, she has touched the hearts of not only her keepers but the thousands of guests that have seen her grow-up. Join us this weekend, Saturday & Sunday, February 1 & 2, as we say goodbye to Maya. Like all growing children, they must eventually leave the nest and start families of their own. Maya will be leaving us to begin hers the week of February 3, 2014. Maya, like many of the Zoo's animals, is part of a Species Survival Plan (see below for more details) and has received a breeding recommendation from the Jaguar SSP Studbook Keeper to be paired with a handsome male jaguar at the Los Angeles Zoo. The first 100 children through the Zoo's gates on Saturday & Sunday, February 1 & 2 will receive a special jaguar-themed surprise from Maya herself.
