Big cats to temporarily leave the Zoo in November

Big cats to temporarily leave the Zoo in November

Big things are happening at the Fort Worth Zoo. The new African Savanna continues to be a visitor favorite. Elephant Springs is set to open in spring of 2021, bringing incredible additions and changes to the elephant exhibit. But before that exhibit debuts, we’ll break ground on phase three of our A Wilder Vision master plan: Hunters of Africa & Asian Predators. This new exhibit will include reimagined, renovated and new habitats for the Zoo’s big cats, along with a few other residents.  Upon completion of this phase, we will also introduce some new species and reconnect with a few from the past. However, as construction begins, some Zoo residents had to leave their current home at the Fort Worth Zoo and we had to say farewell (for now!) to the lions, tigers, zebras and hyenas. (You can still visit the Zoo's other big cats and canines: jaguars, mountain lions, coyotes and wolves down in Texas Wild!.)

Although this construction is ongoing, the majority of our exhibits are not affected.
