In the 1950s, when the zoo moved to its current location, keeping animals clean and their exhibit spaces sterile were the highest priorities. In the last half-century, the science of wildlife care and management has evolved far beyond this “keep it clean” mindset into one that embraces naturalistic habitats and animal enrichment that stimulates both the body and the mind.
