Featured Animal: Zoo Babies

Greet the new year with a new PAL – a Zoo PAL that is! We dare you to try to pick the cutest between our Toledo Zoo babies. Enroll as a Zoo PAL for our baby orangutan, Fajar, baby gorilla, Michael, baby alpaca, Nancy or baby colobus, Zuri. 

We understand that our community and our world is experiencing turbulent times with the spread of the COVID-19 virus. Please know that your support is needed and appreciated now more than ever to help care for our animals and continue operations.
