Zoo Boise operates as a partnership between the city of Boise and a non-profit organization. With an array of animals to check out and learn about, there is no doubt that a trip to the zoo is going to be an exciting time no matter your age. However, the zoo itself has a whole lot more to offer its visitors than you would have perhaps expected.
The Animals at Zoo Boise
Zoo Boise has animals from each and every part of the world from the mighty lions of Africa to the Red Panda of Asia and so much more. From the endangered snow leopard to those cute and funny meerkats, animals of all shapes and sizes, as well as characters are there for you to check out and watch until your heart is content.
Furthermore, you can guarantee that the zoo has a number of animals in their collection that you will have never even heard of before. Take the Greater Malayan Chevrotain as an example, or perhaps the Indian Flying Fox, which is a species of bat, you will discover that you have a newly found appreciation of what nature has given us around the world.
Events and Volunteering
There is so much more to do at Zoo Boise than to simply admire the animals. Not only do they offer a series of events throughout the year where you can learn even more, but there are also different volunteering opportunities where you can just help out and keep the zoo running.
Perhaps you will be dealing with exhibits or helping visitors with any issues that they are having or, alternatively, you could be assisting the animal care staff with their chores allowing you some up close and personal time with a number of the animals. If you love wildlife and the concept of conservation, then this could be the perfect opportunity for you.
Zoo Boise is open every day from 10am to 5pm giving you ample opportunity to just take your time and to check out what they have to offer you. With some of the cutest and most amazing animals you will ever see, this is certainly a place where the entire family in Boise can just spend some wonderful times together while also being able to check out some wildlife up close and personal.
