A nighttime lantern wonderland celebrating the beauty of the natural world

Stroll the Zoo after dark to be inspired by more than 80 nature-inspired lanterns depicting some of Earth’s most amazing and charismatic flora and fauna, both real and imagined. Each lantern is made and hand-painted by Chinese artisans, therefore representing thousands of hours of work. In keeping with Zoo Atlanta’s commitment to sustainability, each lantern also features environmentally-friendly LED lights.
