Learn About the Species Living at the Zoo

Our animal collection shifts and changes as the goals of the zoo and the zoological community evolve. Decisions are based on what is best for the individual animals and the species. Our collection decisions are based on these criteria:

  1. Can we meet the habitat and the care requirements of the animals?
  2. Do we have the staff expertise?
  3. Does acquiring the species enhance learning opportunities?
  4. Does acquiring the species support conservation needs or initiatives?
  5. Are the animals available from other facilities?
