Dear zoo friend,
Have you been to the zoo lately? If not, you are missing out on a lot of exciting new exhibits, programs and promotions. The Binghamton Zoo's reZOOvenation project is swinging into high gear, making your zoo one of the most popular and enjoyable facilities in the Southern Tier once again. Our red panda baby Zhin-Li made national headlines this year and was a signature example of the excitement that is happening at the nation's fifth oldest zoo.
As we get ready to bring in new endangered species and build a new gift shop, we are hard at work to receive continued accreditation from the AZA (Association of Zoos and Aquariums). The inspection and evaluation will ensure that your zoo is operating at the highest standards possible. All of this and more will be taking place in 2014, and we hope you will visit to see for yourself.
2013 was a significant step in making improvements for the animals and enhancing opportunities for you and other visitors to make your experience enjoyable, and we are committed to improving your experience and the zoo each year. Your investment will not only ensure future generations will have fond memories of the Binghamton Zoo, but will support ongoing conservation and education efforts.
Check out our website at www.rossparkzoo.com to stay abreast of all the excitement. We want to belong to the zoo this year! Thank you for your support!
