Do you miss the Philadelphia Zoo? I know we do. And there is certainly no doubt that the Philly Zoo misses you too!  These warm, sunny days have been reminders of just how much I miss our family’s visits to the zoo this time of year. Last spring we were enjoying tours of the animals’ habitats and zoo grounds and exhibits, cocktails in the beer garden, noshing on delicious fare from the food trucks, riding on the carousel and enjoying good old fashioned family time. I miss the playful antics of the animals and the smiles all around as people gaze and enjoy all that the zoo has to offer. And I eagerly look forward to the opportunity to visit again once the zoo reopens its doors to the public.

While the zoo has been closed to the public for over two months now, operations continue as usual inside of the zoo, where keepers continue to care for and nurture all of the precious animals and species living within this iconic Philadelphia landmark.
