NOTICE OF ZOO CLOSURE
The North Carolina Zoo will be closing today, April 19 at 1:00 p.m. due to the forecast of severe thunderstorms.
Several animals that live at the North Carolina Zoo are rescues. Found as a kitten on the side of the road next to her dead mother, the Zoo’s bobcat would not have survived. She is now thriving under the professional care at the Zoo.
This species is cooperatively managed as part of the Association of Zoos and Aquariums' Species Survival Plan program program. This program is responsible for developing a Breeding and Transfer Plan for each species in the program.
