The pair of koalas that are on loan to the Great Plains Zoo in Sioux Falls, South Dakota will soon be heading home. Moki and Burra will be returning to their home at the San Diego Zoo.

The marsupials’ departure will be marked with a Farewell Weekend Celebration September 1 through 3. The Zoo’s Koala Wilds exhibit will close after Labor Day.

Hang out with them one last time in our Koala Wilds exhibit while enjoying Zookeeper Chats, up-close Creature Feature encounters and free Koala stickers for the kids! You can also sign a farewell banner for Moki and Burra that they will take back with them to San Diego!

The zoo adds that visitors can get a $2 discount on admission for each person in your group who’s wearing Koala gear or brings a Koala plush.
