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 next year, 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 we prepare for construction, some Zoo residents must leave their current home at the Fort Worth Zoo. Join us this fall as we say farewell (for now!) to the lions, tigers, zebras and hyenas.

Make time to visit the Zoo and connect with these fierce predators before we see them again in their lush new exhibits.

We invite you to give the animals a proper send off with your loudest lion roars, hyena howls, handwritten cards (look for the drop box) and air hugs and high fives!
