Welcome to the Asian Forest Sanctuary

cloudieExotic and mysterious, reverent and inspiring, this lush five-acre exhibit complex introduces you to the vanishing species of southern Asia. There are eight exhibit areas with many viewing points, as well as a waterfall, streams, ponds, mineral licks, and bamboo forest.

In the Asian Forest Sanctuary, you'll find exquisitely beautiful tigers, playful river otters, curious primates and a humble anoa. See clouded leopards prowl through their exhibit and watch the elephants come into the Elephant Barn every afternoon for their dinner.

And keep your eyes and ears open for our tapirs! Yuna (female) and Baku (male) have recently been paired together, and are loving it - listen for excited squeals and hiccups!

Zoo staff is available daily to satisfy your curiosity about these amazing animals.
