May 27 to September 9
Zoo guests will have an uplifting experience as magnificent macaws create a cascade of color overhead. Zoo guests will witness multiple daily flights as the macaw flock creates an aerial ballet across the Zoo and then lands in the new Bicentennial Pavilion. In the Pavilion, visitors will experience Macaws up close to see these beautiful birds and learn about them. The Macaws will then take flight again and return to other areas of the Zoo and an outdoor aviary.
Macaws need protection, one-third of the world’s native Macaws are endangered due to pet trade and destruction of habitat. The Indianapolis Zoo supports the ARA project and the World Parrot Trust in efforts to help protect this species.
The Zoo is grateful for our community partner, the Lilly Endowment and their support of the Bicentennial Pavilion project.
