Please take our exhibit survey

Posted by: Bruce W. Bohmke, Acting President and CEO



We’re asking for your thoughts about the zoo’s next major exhibit project. Will you take a few minutes to complete our survey?

Woodland Park Zoo is redeveloping a 3.4-acre area of its Tropical Asia zone formerly occupied by the Elephant Forest exhibit. This large space allows us to explore exhibit ideas that could include a diverse range of Asian wildlife species. Your input will help guide the process as we identify new conservation ambassador species for the zoo and dynamic experiences that will connect you with these animals and the threats they face in the wild.

As stewards of the zoo, we’re working hard to fulfill the zoo’s Long Range Physical Development Plan and renovate and update older areas of the zoo for you and our community at large. Last year, we opened Banyan Wilds with new exhibits for Malayan tigers and sloth bears. This year, we’re bringing back butterflies in a new exhibit near Zoomazium. We’re also very pleased about reopening the Night Exhibit in 2018.

How to Participate
Join us for a dialogue about this Tropical Asia exhibit project during an Open House on Tuesday, March 1 at 6:30 p.m. at the zoo's Education Center or take our online survey now. The survey will take approximately 10-12 minutes to complete.

Over the next two months, we’ll be heading out into community centers and meetings of community groups around the region to learn as much as we can about how we can make our next major project a point of pride for our region. You can help us further our reach by sharing the survey with your friends and family.

Thanks to your support, we are able to continue to evolve as your zoo, provide new and inspiring experiences, and help save endangered species in their home countries around the world. Please accept my gratitude for your help with this important next step for Woodland Park Zoo.
