Philadelphia Zoo is thrilled to announce Thomas Dambo’s TROLLS: Save the Humans, produced by Imagine Exhibitions, is making its East Coast debut in Philadelphia February 1, 2024. The world’s leading recycle artist created these six, folklore-inspired Trolls using repurposed wood. The Trolls are on a mission to inspire humans to take better care of nature.

“As the region’s foremost conservation and education destination, we are excited to welcome these enormous Trolls to the Zoo and have them help us tell the story of how we can all make a difference for the planet,” says Director of Marketing Patrick McMaster. “Thomas Dambo’s Trolls can be found around the world in some of the most beautiful places in nature, and we’re honored to have the Zoo be their next destination.”

Each with a unique name and story, the Trolls believe rethinking how we live our daily lives will help save the planet for all animals, including humans, and they want to share their ideas. They want all humans to reduce trash, reuse everything, and recycle when they can. The Trolls believe that these actions and others to protect wildlife and wild places are important steps to help save the planet for all animals, including humans.

The Trolls are stomping through the Zoo February 1 through April 15. The Trolls, ranging up to 15 feet tall, will be located throughout the Zoo’s 42-acre campus. The exhibition is included in admission to the Zoo. Admission ranges between $19 -$25 for adults and children and is free for Zoo Members. To accompany this exhibit, guests are encouraged to bring their old Zoo Keys (or purchase one at any of the Zoo’s retail locations) to hear stories from the Trolls themselves.
