Renovations to the leopard den and yard are underway. The Amur leopard Sofiya has been moved to another behind-the-scenes location while this work takes place and will not be spotted by guests until the project is complete.
The Tree habitat in the Maryland Wilderness area is closed for renovation until spring. The reptiles and amphibians inside the tree, such as wood turtles and Eastern tiger salamanders, will not be viewable during this time. The giant tree slide can still be accessed by the stairs outside of the tree but may be closed at some times.
The day has finally arrived! The new and renovated Lion Habitat is now open to guests, and our lions Zuri and Hassan have returned. The giraffe yards and expanded Elephant Overlook are still in progress, but with warmer weather now in the air, construction is springing forward! Check out the update below for the latest news on the renovations.
