Mesker Park Zoo worked very hard to complete and open its newest attraction for the zoo, AMAZONIA. Hundreds of animals native to the rainforest are living in AMAZONIA including a jaguar, howler monkeys, freshwater stingrays, and emerald tree boas just to name a few. There are also more than 1,000 species of trees and plants and a 17-foot waterfall.
Mesker Park Zoo has been rewarded with smashing attendance since the opening on August 4th. Zoo officials report that more than 38,000 thousand visitors came which is a new record in attendance for the zoo. We congratulate all who have worked so hard to make this project a success.
