Given the possibility of winter weather, the Zoo will be on a 2-hour delay and plans to open at 11:00 a.m. on Tuesday, Jan. 16. We will continually reassess the situation on Monday evening and Tuesday morning and may change our hours further or even close the Zoo if conditions warrant.

National Geographic Photo Ark grand opening

April 20, 2017

sl_photoark-mobile2

Come face-to-face with the animals of the National Geographic Photo Ark, featuring large-format images taken by Nat Geo photographer Joel Sartore.

The interaction between animals and their environments is the engine that keeps the planet healthy for all of us. But for many species, time is running out. When you remove one, it affects us all.

The National Geographic Photo Ark is a multiyear effort to raise awareness of and find solutions to some of the most pressing issues affecting wildlife and their habitats. The Photo Ark’s three-pronged approach harnesses the power of National Geographic’s photography and the bold ideas of our explorers. Led by National Geographic photographer Joel Sartore, the project aims to document every species currently held in zoos, inspire action through education, and help save wildlife by supporting on-the-ground conservation efforts.

*Free with Zoo admission
