Albuquerque real estate is the home of many of the world’s most fascinating creatures. The ABQ BioPark Zoo first opened in 1927. It’s now the Albuquerque home of more than 900 animals, many of them threatened or endangered species. The zoo is heavily involved in world-wide conservation efforts. The exhibits at the zoo focus on allowing visitors to see animals in as natural a habitat as possible.
Go to Birds of the Americas to see some of North and South America’s beautiful, colorful species, including macaws, sun conures, and familiar species like the roadrunner. Conservation is an important part of the work of the zoo, and the Zoo Babies exhibit is a wonderful introduction to the creatures the zoo is working to support. See baby hippos, snow leopard triplets, and the zoo’s multi-generational herd of elephants.
Feed the Zoo Animals that Call Albuquerque Home
Not only can visitors look at animals in their habitats, they can also feed them. During the summer, see just how long a giraffe’s tongue is and give them a snack. Come for the hippo feeding every day at 2 p.m. Meet a soft llama or alpaca. On Fridays, watch as the crocodiles are fed.
Albuquerque real estate owners can visit the zoo any day of the year except for January 1st, Thanksgiving, and December 25. It’s open from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Visit the ABQ BioPark to get more information about the animals and events, ticket prices, and zoo membership.
