Africa Pathway Closed
The pedestrian pathway to Africa is currently closed due to construction on our elephant exhibit. Africa will only be accessible by tram, which is free to all guests during this time. Thank you for your patience while we improve your Zoo.
The river otter is a recovering species of mustelid once found in nearly every body of water in North America. Over hunting for the otter’s luxurious fur lead to a steep decline in their numbers and rarity in wild sightings, recent efforts at reintroduction to native ranges have resulted in a successful comeback. You can find our otters near the front entrance to the Zoo.
