Conservation Action

In Support of Bushmasters

The Los Angeles Zoo is one of the few zoos that exhibits the South American bushmaster and has successfully bred the species. The Zoo recently partnered with the Orianne Society in support of their Mesoamerican Project. The conservation organization will conduct field surveys, educate local communities in Costa Rica and Panama, and work with residents to assist in their studies, which will shed light on the elusive, highly venomous vipers that are usually active after dark.

Once you look for them, you’ll see a kaleidoscope of butterflies (and moths, too) at the L.A. Zoo.
