By popular demand, WWA added a new feature to our zoo in the off-season of 2023 - personal animal encounters! During these reserved sessions, our staff will guide you and your guests in a hands-on visit with many of our most-loved residents, including sloths, capybaras and baby kangaroos! You can also feed the kookaburras and interact with other animals in our main building, including our tortoises and reptiles.

Animal Encounters were so popular that we're in the process of expanding the program, including offering sessions during our normal operating season!  Reservations for Animal Encounters have been suspended while we finalize all the details, but if you're interested in booking your own Encounter, we urge you to subscribe to our newsletter to be notified when all is ready!
