See The Faces Of The Rainforest At Roger Williams Park Zoo In Rhode Island For An Adorable Adventure
Have you been to the Roger Williams Park Zoo lately? It has definitely been an interesting year for the zoo crew, with covid related closures and reduced capacity leaving an impact. Luckily, the zoo is open to visitors, with a few restrictions. But their latest exhibit, Faces of the Rainforest, is sure to draw a crowd (just not at the same time). Here’s why this is a fantastic time to check out the zoo.
Roger Williams Park Zoo is located on 40 acres of beautiful woodlands.
The zoo is supported and managed by the Rhode Island Zoological Society and owned by the City of Providence.
This is actually the third oldest zoo in the country, with an opening year of 1872.
Conservation and environmental education were unknown concepts at the time, although they are huge factors in the way the zoo operates now.
When you visit, you can see animals from all over the globe -- and you can breathe easy, knowing they're well cared for.
The zoo, which is American Humane certified, is home to many endangered species. The zoo participates in cooperative conservation and breeding programs to help ensure their survival.
The next time you go, make sure to check out Faces of the Rainforest.
This exhibit takes you on a journey to an Amazon rainforest, where you'll see all kinds of fascinating creatures.
From South American giant river otters to Titi monkeys, you never know what you'll see here.
The giant anteater is a local favorite, as are the Chilean flamingos.
You'll know you're in the right place when you hear the howler monkey's cry.
They can often be heard from two or three miles away in the wild.
Come visit this charming attraction and you'll understand why protecting our rainforests is so important.
Plus, these social creatures are waiting to meet you (from a distance, of course).
