We are federally licensed by the USDA; ensuring that our animals, their care, and facilities meet the same standards of all USDA licensed zoos and aquariums in the US. We are also licensed by NYS Department of Environmental Conservation and NYS Agriculture & Markets.

Many of our animal ambassadors are from rescue situations & surrenders! Ask our staff, we would love to share their story with you!


We are proud to be a part of the Species Survival Plan!

Overseen by the Association of Zoos and Aquariums, the focus of the SSP is to maintain a healthy and self-sustaining captive population that is both genetically diverse and demographically stable.

The species belonging to the SSP are selected based on the belief of captive breeding programs being their only chance for survival. We are honored to be a part of the solution.
