Temporary closures

Walkthrough aviaries: Due to a local report of avian influenza, some of our walkthrough aviaries are temporarily closed to ensure the safety of our animals. This includes some areas of Monsoon Forest*, the Latin American Wetland Aviary and Tropical Realm.

*Monsoon Forest has partially reopened, with access to Tripa Forest Research Station through the south end entrance door ONLY.

Many species in these areas can be seen from surrounding outdoor viewing areas. Sorry for any inconvenience.
