Our zoo has gorillas again! It's been eleven years since. The exhibit officially opened this morning. Last weekend we learned that the zoo would be doing a week long member preview so were able to sneak in a little early and beat the crowds.
The exhibit is absolutely amazing. Even with crowds there will still be plenty of viewing areas as there's a long bridge that goes the whole length of the exhibit. There are also two indoor viewing areas. I wish I would have taken more pictures of the exhibit itself.
I know not everyone supports zoos, but we do. They do a lot as far as rescue and conservation,
The zoo is now home to seven gorillas. The way the exhibit is set up is great because you can really see them up close. While we were there the gorillas were spread out everywhere and pretty active. They seem to be enjoying exploring their new home.
I hope everyone has a safe and relaxing holiday weekend. Our girl turns FOUR on Sunday.
