I have a hate-love relationship with zoos. I've volunteered for private facilities with "exotic animals," so I know how unhappy and unnaturally limited the animals can be ):
BUT this zoo really has the best climate, and keeps renovating to give the animals more of the space they need. In comparison to a lot of the zoos and aquariums I have visited, this zoo not only had the most variety in little furry, scaly, and spiky residents, but they also had the most dynamic enclosures that tried to mimic their environment in the best ways.
I am ecstatic about this zoo. I hope they keep trying to improve the environment and implement more educational programs :D
Animals that have the option to tuck away and come back out whenever~
Many different ecosystems to nurture many different animals!!!
Fun hike in itself, even when there's some rain
WILL get crowded on a weekend (could be a good thing if you like kids :D)
Penguin enclosure could use some work... but I'm sure they'll get there
Some workers aren't there for the animals***
***I found a dying field mouse and scooped it up with my brochure; asked a worker if there was anything we could do for it... They didn't really know, so I had to just move it out of the crowd's way and put him in an area of bushes to keep anyone from trampling him ): I shouldn't expect to much of workers who don't work hands-on with the animals, but I can't help but wish that they were at least more educated with little things like this~
