They All Ask'd For You … To Mask!

For those of you missing the white alligator or tumbling down Monkey Hill, the Audubon Nature Institute announced the reopening of the Audubon Zoo earlier this week! Though the animals all would love to see you, they also want everyone to stay safe and follow the new guidelines for zoo visits.

Both members and non-members must reserve a specific date and entry time online. Guests are asked to review the new guidelines so that everyone can have a fun and safe experience. New protocols include mandatory masks and daily temperature checks for all staff, signs placed around the facility encouraging social distancing, free hand sanitizer stations, and continuous cleaning of high-touched surfaces.

In addition to their safety precautions, all indoor animal exhibits like the Reptile Encounter and "Criaturas de la Noche Nocturnal House" will be closed. Also, Cypress Knee Cafe and the indoor dining area of Zoofari Cafe will be closed, but the Zoo will be offering a limited menu available for purchase outside the Zoofari Cafe, along with outdoor seating.

Though not required, Audubon strongly encourages visitors to wear masks while on the zoo's property. Masks are also available for purchase inside the zoo. For more information or to reserve your visiting time, please visit AudubonNatureInstitute.org/zoo.

**Note: Due to Tropical Storm Cristobal, Audubon Zoo, Golf and Tennis will be closed on Sunday, June 7th, 2020.
