Lions, Tigers, And Bears Oh My, All At The Buffalo Zoological Zoo!
There is nothing more fun than a day at the zoo. If you are in the Buffalo, New York area, with beautiful architecture, why not visit their zoo. It has been there for 140 years. It is the country’s 3rd oldest zoo, having opened in 1875. It all started as a present of two deer to the city of Buffalo, from a furrier named Jacob E. Bergtold, and from there, it grew and grew, to what it is in the present day.
This zoo has something for everyone, of all ages. For the kids, aged 5-12, the zoo offers Spring, Summer, and Winter day camps that are from 9:00 AM-3:30 PM. Every week during these camps offers a different topic to learn about. You can sign your kids up for a new session every week. Spaces are limited so sign up quickly. The prices are based on if you are a zoo member or not.
There is also a cubs camp for those aged 3-5. These are shorter and geared towards the little ones. They ho from 9:00 AM to 11:30 AM, and 1:00 PM to 3:30 PM. For teens and adults, you can schedule an “Educators guide” tour, along with your regular ticket. It is a more in-depth tour involving live animal demonstrations and more.
The zoo is comprised of 23.5 acres of land and houses many different types of animals. These animals are housed in special enclosed environments, that mimic their homelands so that they are happy and healthy.
