“The Excitement is Building!”

August 13, 2018


On August 2nd, the Utica Zoo officially announced the kick off of their newest Zoo Improvement Campaign, “The Excietment is Building!”

The new campaign will fund the complete renovation of the Primate House, adding an outdoor White Handed Gibbon habitat roughly 8 times the size of their current exhibit space, designed as a Living Rainforest. The renovation will also add a comparable Living Rainforest outdoor exhibit space for our Spider Monkeys, as well as indoor improvements to keeper areas, the general infrastructure, viewing areas, and a new roof.
