Regenstein Macaque Forest
Located at the site of the old Kovler Penguin-Seabird House, the zoo’s next great exhibit will be a state-of-the-art home for Japanese macaques, or “snow monkeys.” These lively primates will thrill visitors with rich social displays among hot springs and evergreen trees. Look for Regenstein Macaque Forest to open soon!
Construction continues on the west end, but Regenstein Macaque Forest is starting to resemble a real exhibit, President and CEO Kevin Bell shares.
