Ira’s Birthday

Ira’s Birthday Party – February 6, 2021

America’s Teaching Zoo at Moorpark College will re-open Saturday February 6th, just in time to celebrate the 7th birthday of Ira the lion, King of the Campus.

Guests will get their first chance, in person or virtually, to see Ira in his new home appropriately named “Ira’s Kingdom”.

Ira moved to his new home on December 23rd after 2 years of fundraising, months of construction and weeks of training him for the big move to his new home down the front road of the zoo.

Guests who purchase a virtual experience will meet Ira’s trainers, enjoy a tour of his new home, hear stories from training staff about how they moved him and help Ira celebrate the big birthday as he enjoys his lion birthday cake.

Guests who purchase a ticket to visit the zoo will see Ira jump, run and play with enrichment while enjoying his “presents”.

Ira’s Kingdom would not be possible without the support of our community, major donors and Moorpark College.
