ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (KRQE) – The BioPark Society Online Auction has begun and several items are in demand. The auction includes experiences like breakfast with bears, giraffes, or elephants, the chance to name a baby otter, and a behind-the-scenes tour of the vet clinic at the zoo.
The breakfast with giraffes experience is up to $650 after starting at just $150 on Sunday morning. The price for the elephant zookeeper experience is up to $850.
While bids have gone up quickly, the BioPark Society is expecting it to come down to the wire on Tuesday. “I expect on Tuesday afternoon we’ll have some heated bidding wars,” said Events Directory Taylor Pelligrini.
You can also bid on custom animal artwork, handcrafted River of Lights displays, or vintage zoo signs. The BioPark Society is raising money for the upkeep of the BioPark as well as to help fund conservation efforts. If you’re interested in bidding, you can put in your bid online.
