Brookfield Zoo Goes Blue for Autism Awareness
  • Brookfield Zoo is partnering with Autism Speaks to take part in the annual Zoos Goes Blue campaign. The event takes place at select AZA-accredited zoos and aquariums across North America during World Autism Awareness Month. To commemorate the day, the zoo's iconic lion statues will be clothed in blue scarves, and blue flags will decorate the park's grounds. Throughout the day, special Zoos Goes Blue activities will be taking place for families with children on the autism spectrum. These include a "quiet hour on the Carousel, a sensory-friendly Dolphins in Action presentation, and special animal Zoo Chats.
