Shows & Activities


Our goal is to provide a safe and welcoming space for everyone to enjoy the Zoo and connect with nature and wildlife. For the health and safety of our guests and the animals, some exhibits and programming are currently unavailable.

Per the latest research and recommendations, all mammals are now considered vulnerable to contracting COVID-19. Therefore, for the health and welfare of the animals in our care, some habitats and experiences will remain closed or have restricted access to ensure physical distancing. Please see the list below. The majority of animal exhibits will be accessible to guests.
