Birds do it. Bees do it. Find out how animals at the Detroit Zoo do it at Love Gone Wild. Open to both singles and sweethearts, this memorable Valentine’s Day event will offer a candid and entertaining look at how zoo animals do the “wild thing”. The evening will include an intimate and revealing look into the “dating” and mating escapades of the Zoo’s animals.

Love Gone Wild will be held in the Zoo’s Ford Education Center and will feature a strolling supper and delectable desserts prepared by the Detroit Zoo’s culinary team. A champagne welcome, two drink tickets and a commemorative gift are also included.

This year’s Love Gone Wild will also demonstrate our commitment to our green journey by striving to become the Zoo’s first waste-free event. Love Gone Wild will focus on locally-grown and sustainable menu options as well as incorporating environmentally-friendly practices throughout the evening.
