Throughout the pandemic shutdowns, we had essential employees working behind-the-scenes. To keep more than 800 animals that reside at the zoo fed and cared for, our keeper staff continued to provide the same excellent husbandry services despite being closed to the public.

“2020 has been difficult for us, as it has been for nearly every business. Field trips, special events, and many other aspects of our business have been affected. That’s why we’re eager to continue doing what we do best—educating and entertaining the public. But we’re committed to doing it in the safest and most responsible way possible; the health and safety of both our staff and visitors is paramount,” said Clyde Peeling, director.
