Zoo Boise recently broke ground on the new Gorongosa National Park Exhibit. Through donors and community support, Zoo Boise will be able to expand by 1.5 acres and will enhance the zoo’s conservation efforts. The Gorongosa exhibit is expected to generate $2 million towards efforts in Mozambique to protect wild elephants, lions, zebras and other animals there. Zoo officials announced that many new animals will be featured once the construction is finished, including Nile crocodiles, African wild dogs, otters, warthogs, baboons and vervet monkeys. Construction is expected to finished by summer of 2019, they zoo will remain open throughout the construction.
Peterson Toyota is happy to have been involved with Zoo Boise over the past couple of years and see this project come to fruition. We look forward to seeing the the finished product.
