Amazing Green Zoo

We have officially announced that we are embarking on an exciting new journey – to become the “world’s first environmentally sustainable zoo built from the ground up!” We may have all kinds of footprints here, but none of them will be of the “carbon” kind when we move to our brand new Green facility!

In the Press

Check out all of our press in the local newspapers, but keep in mind that our grand opening date has been delayed as we await the next round of funding and are able to go vertical.
