The Small Wonders of Africa exhibit, located across from the giraffe habitat, will be opening this weekend! This dynamic multi-species exhibit will include permanent residents as well as visiting exhibits and species. Each of the animal species, including Aardvark, Straw-colored Fruit Bat, Red-billed Hornbill, Crested Guineafowl and Wolf’s Guenon, will help tell the story of East Africa, presenting the challenges of conserving wildlife in this corner of the world.
The $700,000 renovation has increased the footprint of the older building and includes three, new exhibit spaces. Finer-grade, stainless steel mesh and glass allow up-close viewing by visitors – enabling them to get nose-to-nose with an Aardvark, exploring inside a termite mound. Visitors will be able to explore the base camp and dig for fossilized bones as part of their African adventure.
