About the Bronx Zoo:
This New York Attraction is one of four zoos and one aquarium that are run by the Wildlife Conservation Society. While visiting these New York Attractions is a popular Thing to do in NY, the main goal of the Society is to protect endangered species and help to shore up the natural habitats of those which are endangered.
The Bronx Zoo encompasses 265 acres and includes 6,000 animals. The zoo opened for the first time in November of 1899, and has been a popular New York Attraction ever since. Visitors love to see the many large animals such as giraffes, tigers, polar bears and gorillas. Other animals on exhibit are the red panda, a rare snow leopard as well as dozens of species of birds, fish, reptiles and even insects. The beautiful Monarch Butterfly and the less-beautiful-but-still-cool Madagascar Hissing Cockroach can be seen here.
The Bronx Zoo is open all year but, because some animals are sensitive to the cold, many exhibits are only open during the warmer months. In addition to viewing the exhibits, visitors can also enjoy special animal demonstrations that allow a closer look at some of the zoo’s residents.
The Bronx Zoo is a hugely popular New York Attraction, and your visit supports the many important conservation initiatives of the Wildlife Conservation Society. Add a visit to the Zoo to your list of things to do during your next stay at a New York City Hotel.
