The El Paso Zoo is even more wild with the Wildlife Amphitheater now open! Funded by the 2012 Quality of Life bond funds, the state-of-the-art Wildlife Amphitheater is a place for Zoo guests to engage and learn in a whole new way through animal encounters, educational programs, concerts, and much more!

Sheeba on perch 8x10With seating for approximately 300 guests, the open-air Wildlife Amphitheater will feature a beautiful Chihuahuan desert background and immersive release sites that will engage and delight the crowd as birds fly right overhead. Additionally, the facility will provide 4,000 square feet of additional animal holding to house reptiles, mammals, birds, and invertebrates for the Wildlife Amphitheater and the El Paso Zoo Education Department.

The Wildlife Amphitheater is also home to the Wings of the World bird show, sponsored by Paul and Alejandra Foster. Wings of the World is a world-renowned free flight bird show and a one-of-a-kind opportunity for Zoo guests to experience the majesty of animals as they swoop, soar, and dive through the air. The show is led by Joe Krathwohl – known as The Birdman® – who has dedicated himself to the care and preservation of birds and has developed the largest free flight bird show in the world (and the only show featuring trained condors and cassowary!).
