What’s News at the Zoo! 

The much-anticipated reopening date has been announced and we are all looking forward to Monday, July 19, 2021, when we will be open from 10:00 am to 3:00 pm daily.  That opening and closing times will continue for the first few weeks.  Entrance to the zoo will be through the new Friends of the Pana’ewa Zoo (FOZ) gift shop.

Artist Charlene Lofgreen has been working hard on making a visual impact at the reptile house.  Her two new murals that she has been working on for the past two weeks features our Iguanas and Frogs and provides a colorful backdrop to the redesigned picnic area.



Many of our animals will enjoy having people back in the zoo.  Especially some of the more gregarious parrots that love to interact and catch the attention of unsuspecting passersby!  Some of you will recognize these three notorious talkers…or should I say screechers, as Max (Catalina Macaw), Romeo (Moluccan Cockatoo) and AJ (Citron Crested Cockatoo).

They’re all here waiting for your next visit to the zoo so stop by their exhibits and give them a big shout and see what happens next!
