Three Mexican gray wolf pups were born at the zoo in 1994, and seven in 1995.The zoo receives birds of prey that have been injured and heals them. If the birds are well enough to return to the wild they are released, otherwise they are kept in the zoo.Some special exhibits include a lemur exhibit,a birds of prey exhibit,and a butterfly garden.Several programs operate in the Educational Center, including an Eco-Ranger Junior Zookeeper program.The center is also open to the public for viewing videos and reading books from the collection.
