Renovations to the North American river otter habitat are underway. River otters Piper and Hudson will not be viewable while this work takes place. Other habitats may be impacted at select times throughout the project.
The main access to the Maryland Wilderness is currently closed. Guests may enjoy the Farmyard by entering from Zoo Central.
Winter has not slowed us down! Progress on the lion, giraffe and elephant habitat renovations continue and in the update below you’ll start to see some of the most exciting features of the new spaces (like floor to ceiling glass viewing windows for lions and new places to get eye to eye with elephants) taking shape.
Exciting progress is being made at the lion habitat. The glass for the new viewing windows has now been installed!
