Audubon Zoo Celebrating Mother’s Day with a Special Message from Irma Thomas and Family Activities

Audubon Zoo continues the tradition of honoring moms with several family activities this weekend. This includes keeping the longstanding tradition with Irma Thomas going, albeit in a different way. The "Soul Queen of New Orleans" recorded a special message for the Audubon family, and members of the public can enjoy Spotify’s "This is Irma Thomas" playlist during their Mother’s Day festivities.

Audubon’s website also includes a variety of fun activities to celebrate the day and honor mom. There is a list of Audubon restaurant partners, a card for the kiddos to download and decorate, and more.

"Even though we can't spend the day with you this year, I hope you'll enjoy what we've put together to help create an Audubon Mother's Day at home,’” says Audubon Nature Institute President and CEO Ron Forman. “A huge thank you to longtime friend of the Zoo, Irma Thomas, for helping us show our appreciation for the moms of New Orleans."

While Audubon facilities are closed, supporters can help the dedicated staff who continue to provide outstanding care for the animals that they love by donating to the Audubon Recovery Fund.
