Breakfast with Shoebill Storks

Join us for an unforgettable breakfast event and get up-close with rare shoebill storks. As home to three of only four shoebill storks in the United States, ZooTampa offers you the rare opportunity to meet this amazing species and learn from the experts. These fascinating birds can reach five feet in height and are classified as vulnerable, with only 3,300 to 3,500 mature shoebills still living in the wild. Their new habitat is located in the Africa realm and will offer the first glimpse of these incredible animals in more than a decade.

Program Includes:
  • Breakfast quiche, bagels, coffee & juices
  • Light breakfast enjoyed overlooking our new shoebill stork habitat
  • Discussion on baobab trees and shoebills
  • Animal Care chat, Q&A
