Global Warming

Global warming is real and a threat to the world's animal population. The year 2004 was the fourth hottest on record, extending a trend since 1990. If we continue to emit greenhouse gases at our current pace, our earth's temperature is projected to skyrocket by as much as 10ยบ F in the next 100 years.

Use compact fluorescent lights rather than incandescent. They cost more but save you money down the road and conserve energy.

Exhibit Update

This exhibit, situated at the entry to the Expedition Africa loop, will house a multigenerational extended family of meerkats, allowing for both interactive and learning experiences. It will be long and linear, extending approximately 50 feet in length, and incorporate multiple viewing areas from which guests can experience the entire meerkat and dik-dik habitat, as well as the new African Rock Python home. A highlight of the exhibit is an interactive termite mound where children can crawl inside to get an “up close and personal” view of the meerkats traversing through the tunnels in their natural habitat. The exhibit will also feature a Nyami Nyami River Lodge overlook, beautiful rock formations, strategically located benches and new boardwalks with prime viewing vantage points. This is all part of this new and impressive African expansion.
