  • Everything about this facility is wonderful. The students who run it love their work and strive to protect the animals and environment they care for. The staff is amazing and does everything they can to create knowledgeable and caring people to preserve the world. The facility is beautiful and the amount of endangered species living here is astounding for a small zoo.
  • Great place. We love this zoo. We easily go 2-3 times a month. One suggestion: Have employees park in the large lot away from the main entrance. The parking lot along the grass is usually full and we are sometimes the only people there.
  • Been to this zoo twice now and they have great assortment of animals here. 4 different kinds of primates and even a tree kangaroo so cool!! I would recommend giving this place a go if you have some kids or if you really love animals!
  • Whats a great little zoo with animals that you can get up close to. Perfect for young kids who would tire out trying to cover one of the big zoos and the environment is beautiful. The staff consists of students who are all very eager to share all they know about the animals with you and do a very good job of it ad well.
  • Small, but packed full of exhibits. Friendly and knowledgeable staff.
