'The Magic of Life'

Dublin Zoo have just announced the return of Wild Lights this winter.

The theme for this year's show is, 'The Magic of Life.'

If you haven't been to Wild Lights at Dublin Zoo before, you can expect breath taking lanterns showcasing some of the most fascinating plant and animal communities and ecosystems on our planet.

Travel along a one-way trail past illuminated woodland scenes before encountering wondrous pollinators including giant bees and beehives. 

Visitors will witness some of nature’s most fascinating transformations, including the metamorphosis of a caterpillar into a butterfly. 

And you'll be happy to hear Dublin Zoo are ensuring Wild Lights can operate without impacting on the national energy supply during the upcoming winter.

In order to do this, the event will be taken off the energy grid and will be powered by hydrotreated vegetable oil (HVO), derived from 100% renewable raw materials.

Speaking about Wild Lights, Dr Christoph Schwitzer, Director of Dublin Zoo, said: 'The team at Dublin Zoo is thrilled to announce that Wild Lights will celebrate The Magic of Life this year.'

'The award-winning event will highlight the importance of the world’s plant and animal kingdoms, something that is at the heart of everything we do here.'

Wild Lights opens to the public Friday 28th October until Monday 9th January 2023.

Tickets go on sale tomorrow morning at 11am.
