The baboon habitat is getting a facelift! It's time to say "goodbye" to the Pavilion and "hello" to some great new features for these amazing animals. While we make these improvements, our baboons will be off habitat until construction is complete.
The spacious rocky habitat for the baboons is ideal. It mirrors the cliff faces of their natural habitat and lets them show off their rock-climbing skills. The size allows multiple males to form “one-male units” (one male, a few females and their offspring), replicating their dynamic social system within a large, multi-generational group.
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.
