We wish to extend our sincere gratitude for your support and visitation during a very difficult 2020 season. When the going got tough, we kept going, which was all made possible by YOU! Receiving no local or state funding, our sustainability is made possible by your support, whether near or far. Please know that you are appreciated!
WHAT'S HAPPENING NOW?

During our few months of "down time", we will continue to watch and monitor Johari and her anticipated calf. You can stay current, 24/7 with our Johari Giraffe Cam. Wonder, Watch & Wait with the World!
Our Feed the Beasts campaign is up and running, which has been established to offset the dietary budgets of the park's over 300 animals, representing 100 species! This campaign provides substantial support and allows our contributors to receive limited additional donor perks! Learn more and make your gift of support: FEED THE BEASTS
We will continue to work within our budgets, providing new and exciting improvements for our 9th season in 2021; memorable and educational experiences for our guests, while maintaining top standards in animal care and welfare for our living collection of animal ambassadors!
Animal Adventure is designed to promote up close and hands-on animal encounters! Hand feed many domestic and exotic animal ambassadors and get within feet of our cute, but less cuddly, carnivores. Bring your camera, but keep one hand open, to feed and make friends, with animals from around the world.

We are federally licensed by the USDA; ensuring that our animals, their care, and facilities meet the same standards of all USDA licensed zoos and aquariums in the US. We are also licensed by NYS Department of Environmental Conservation and NYS Agriculture & Markets.
Many of our animal ambassadors are from rescue situations & surrenders! Ask our staff, we would love to share their story with you!
We are proud to be a part of the Species Survival Plan!
Overseen by the Association of Zoos and Aquariums, the focus of the SSP is to maintain a healthy and self-sustaining captive population that is both genetically diverse and demographically stable.
The species belonging to the SSP are selected based on the belief of captive breeding programs being their only chance for survival. We are honored to be a part of the solution.
