The Beasties are coming back to Milwaukee this summer (2018) as part of the roll-out for the zoo’s new capital campaign. The capital project is supporting Adventure Africa—the redesign of about 25% of the zoo property for new exhibits for our elephants, African hoofed-stock, hippo and rhinos. We have 40 Beasties that are sponsored by various businesses and individuals that will go on display this summer at the zoo and other locations around SE Wisconsin. Local artists have painted them to look like animals. The Safari will go on display at the end of May and will run until September 2018. Many of them will be available for sale at that time.
