Animal News

Please note:

During the winter, most of our large animals will either be off exhibit or have access to their indoor area (given to animals for their comfort and well-being). All of our animal houses will be open during the winter.

Also important to note: Please keep in mind that while you may see Fiona’s parents Henry and BiBi out in this unseasonably warm weather, Fiona is still receiving around the clock care and will not be outside! #TeamFiona
