Omaha’s Henry Doorly Zoo Poised to Expand

Henry Doorly Zoo is currently purchasing an adjacent site to increase the size of the zoo by nearly 36 acres. Incidentally, many urban zoos are less than 30 acres in total size, so this addition is a major add.

HDZ\'s Madagascar Concept Design Model

Plans were announced for $100 million in new exhibits…

  • 950 additional parking spaces
  • Madagascar Exhibit (a currently popular trend…see Bronx)
  • Arctic Exhibit (another popular trend…polar bears)
  • Adding Elephants (different as many zoos are deleting elephants from their collections)
  • Possibly Giant Pandas
