The North Carolina Zoo is temporarily suspending operations
effective March 17 until further notice. More information.
The Thomson’s gazelles at the North Carolina Zoo live in a large herd on the 40-acre Watani Grasslands Reserve habitat. This habitat provides ample space for these small antelope to run, hide, and frolic as well as plenty of grass to graze on.
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.
