Polar Bears & Lemurs Behind-the-Scenes Tour at the Zoo


Meet mammals from two different continents on this wild tour. You’ll meet the polar bears and have a (very!) close encounter with lemurs on this 


  • See Kiska and Koluk, the polar bear brothers, backstage for a training session
  • Find out how zookeepers help the Arctic polar bears thrive in Albuquerque’s climate
  • Feed the family of black and white ruffed lemurs as they leap around (and sometimes ON) you
  • Discover what you can do to help each of these animals’ wild counterparts

In order to enter the lemur habitat, you must be able to go up and down a flight of stairs and walk across uneven terrain. Children aged 12+ are welcome on this tour.
