TAMPA, FL – Busch Gardens® Tampa's beloved orangutan Luna Bella has charmed guests with her silly antics and outgoing personality for years. The animal care team is inviting the public to join them for a birthday bash on Saturday, Sept. 28, because after all, every teenager deserves a “Sweet 16”. 

From 12:30 p.m. to 2 p.m. in the Orangutan Outpost, the animal care team will lavish Luna Bella with a birthday celebration filled with special treats and gifts. The party will continue with children’s activities, learning opportunities and special merchandise deals in the Tiger Treasures gift shop located in Jungala.

Guests can give Luna the best birthday present by contributing to conservation. In honor of Luna Bella’s birthday, a portion of any orangutan-themed souvenir sale will be donated to the SeaWorld and Busch Gardens Conservation Fund.
