BREC’s Baton Rouge Zoo and the community celebrated the holiday season with ZooLights. Illuminated displays of animals and traditional holiday icons lined the mile-long trail to light the way through the zoo for visitors.

This was the fourth consecutive year the Zoo partnered with the Greater Baton Rouge Food Bank to bring impact and excitement to ZooLights. Every guest who brought a non-perishable food item during the hours of ZooLights received a 50% discount from the regular admission price.

In 2021, ZooLights visitors brought in nearly 7,000 pounds of non-perishable food which is the equivalent of nearly 6,000 meals! Thank you to everyone who contributed to supporting ZooLights and the impact made in fighting hunger here locally.
