On the morning of October 19, 2011, Michigan’s legislators discussed proposed changes to the state’s Large Carnivore Act.
Yesterday was a bittersweet day as we said goodbye to Whispering Giant, the iconic Native American statue at PPZ.
For the past few years, our visitors have expressed how much they love Boo at the Zoo, which is great because it’s one of our favorite events to put on here at PPZ!
Did you know that rhinos have existed on Earth for over 50 MILLION YEARS?!Well, now you do.
Why? So we can set up for the Big Zoo Party! If you are planning a trip here, just arrive before noon. As long as you don’t mind our party-prep commotion, you can enjoy a day at the zoo as normal.
All adults in the group help raise baby Cotton-tops, even brothers and sisters.
"One of my favorite places in Michigan. Fairly small zoo with just the right amount of exhibits, nice setting, and overall good experiences."
