Construction Has Begun!

Stay updated on the construction at Zoo Boise.

Zoo Boise is open during construction! Once finished, the new Gorongosa National Park exhibit will feature a variety of animals that can be seen in Gorongosa National Park, including wild African dogs, baboons, Nile crocodiles, vervet monkeys, otters, hyenas, saddle-billed storks, warthogs, nyala and southern ground hornbills. The exhibit will also tell the story of the agricultural, medical and education programs that are in place to partner with the local people. The exhibit will be a way for visitors to learn about all the components of a real life conservation project as it unfolds.

The campaign will also remove and update a number of exhibits that no longer meet modern zoological standards, including the primate house and aviaries.  Instead, that area of the zoo will celebrate our history and better address our visitor needs with a stage, event area, covered seating for dining guests, and some new animal exhibits.

Zoo Boise has launched a construction page and update page to keep you informed.
