New @ The Zoo
Meet The Animals
On Thursday, December 12 the 4D Experience will be closed for repairs.
A few of our buildings are closing at 4:00 or 4:30 for private holiday parties on various days; check the Zoo Lights page for the dates and times.
On December 24, the Zoo will close early at 3:00 p.m. (last entry at 2:00 p.m.) We will not be open on December 25.
Gorillas are coming back to the Zoo in 2015. Please pardon our mess in the African Forest as we prepare for their arrival.
There's construction on the East Hoofed Run as we build new habitats for the maned wolf, tapir and other animals there.
On Saturday, Sunday and Monday May 25-27, join us at the chimpanzee exhibit in the African Forest this weekend for a very special Spotlight on Species, included in your Zoo admission.
Recycle your cell phone at the Zoo during this event and receive a special chimpanzee conservation bracelet.
You can visit our chimpanzee tool gallery, color a chimp mask, pose for a picture in our chimpanzee cutout, and more! Artwork created by our chimpanzees as well as other items will be for sale to raise money for chimpanzee conservation.
We’ll have two special Meet the Keeper Talks during this event – at 12:30 the chimps will receive special food items to fish for in their termite mound. At 2:30 we’ll have a chimp painting or training demonstration!
