(Omaha, NE) -- Omaha's Henry Doorly Zoo and Aquarium welcomes its one millionth visitor of 2022 on Thursday.
The zoo says this year’s millionth visitor was Jeanina Hunt of Papillion, Nebraska. Hunt, a Zoo and Aquarium member, entered the Zoo at about 10:50 a.m. today with her daughters Camila, 7, and Juliana, who turned 4 on Thursday. Zoo leaders say Juliana had asked to come to the Zoo for her birthday to ride Sue’s Carousel.
As the Zoo’s special guest, Hunt and her family were greeted by a “tunnel” of Zoo staff and the Zoo’s Animal Ambassadors. Zoo staff also sang “Happy Birthday” in celebration of Juliana’s birthday. The Hunt family also received an additional 12 months on their Omaha’s Henry Doorly Zoo and Aquarium membership, a Zoo gift basket, ride tickets, Lozier Giant Screen Theater® tickets, a Zoo gift card, and a golf cart tour with giraffe and sea lion encounters.
