Monkey See, Monkey Do: Why you Should Visit the Cape May County Zoo
- July 25, 2014
With over 550 critters representing over 250 species, the Cape May County Zoo offers free admission to their zoo for everyone. The zoo is supported by the non-profit organization Cape May County Zoological Society. This society continuously strives to maintain the zoo for conservation purposes and for the enjoyment of the community. To help keep the zoo alive they are always accepting donations and encourage you to become a “ZooFriend.”
From animals like the Bennett’s Wallaby to the Iberian Ribbed Newt, visitors can be sure to find a favourite in the vast array of flora and fauna. Just last September a baby female giraffe was born to a dam and sire and now roams the grounds of the zoo in her herd. The birth of this calf is the first in over a decade at the Cape May County Zoo.
The Zoo also offers a series of events to the public including their popular Night Walks where visitors can enter the zoo after hours for an additional fee and observe the animals after dark. Also coming up is their Scales and Slime day on August 5th where guests can check out the many amphibians and reptiles as well as make some gooey slime.
The Cape May County Zoo is a family affair, and they encourage anyone to come out and see the splendid wildlife. Putting conservation above all else, their skilled staff and zookeepers give the utmost care to their creatures and hope the community can benefit from their efforts.
