Please BEAR with us! The following exhibits are currently under construction to make the Zoo look like new:

 

Zoo Breaks Ground on new Colobus/Serval exhibit June 2018! 

The Zoo is excited to announce the construction of a new Colobus/Serval exhibit! This brand new exhibit will be constructed across form the Laura P. Nichols Cheetah Outpost and in between the rhino yard and dik dik area. It will feature a larger yard and new climbing structures for our four colobus monkeys as well as an "up and over" bridge that connects the exhibit across a visitor pathway. Guests will be able to view the monkeys from several locations. The new serval cat exhibit will provide a wonderful new home for our serval cats. It will face toward the lion display and will feature new climbing structures and a larger yard. Both exhibits will also include brand new behind-the-scenes service areas for the animals where they will have indoor housing and keepers will have new food prep areas and housing to shift multiple animals at a time. Funds to construct this new habitat come from the LR Cent passed by Little Rock voters. The Zoo expects the exhibit to open in spring 2018!

Susan Jones Citizen Science Center set to open soon!

The Arkansas Zoological Foundation, the non-profit fundraising organization for the Little Rock Zoo, is proud to announce the construction and grand opening of the Susan Jones Citizen Science Center. This area is currently under construction and will renovate a large portion of the Zoo's Education Building. This building is currently not available for public use but will be after this renovation. Children will be able to interact with hands-on learning activities found in the center and learn with Zoo staff and their families about science and conservation. The Zoo is also updating a "Nature Nook" area of the building for toddlers and smaller children. Grand opening of the center is expected at the end of 2018 or beginning of 2019.
