About the Zoo
The Natural Bridge Zoo Park is and always has been privately owned and has never accepted any sort of federal, state, or local funding. The Natural Bridge Zoo opened its doors to the general public in 1972 and has been growing ever since. The main purpose for Natural Bridge Zoo has always been the propagation and rearing of threatened or endangered species. We try to offer students and the general public the opportunity to learn about the living animals, birds, and reptiles that share the earth with us. Many children have little or no contact with natural living things in their daily lives. While television programs are educational, there is nothing like standing next to a giraffe, getting nuzzled by a llama, hugging a baby dromedary camel, or gazing into the eyes of a huge white tiger to make you feel and appreciate our wonderful world of animals.
Many uninformed, but well meaning people, believe that all exotic animals belong free in their natural habitat. What they don’t realize is that in many instances, the wild habitat has been degraded due to lumbering, poaching, agriculture, and human encroachment. We, at the Natural Bridge Zoo, have been breeding threatened and endangered species for over 50 years.
Little known fact, some of the species which we have propagated multiple generations of include: Reticulated Giraffe, Bongo, Sitatunga, Beisa Oryx, Kudu, Blesbok, Demoiselle Crane, Sarus Crane, Stanley Crane, West African Crown Crane, Scarlet Macaw, Blue and Gold Macaw, Military Macaw, Yellow-Naped Amazon Parrot, East African Crowned Cranes, Sacred Ibis, Ring-tailed Lemur, Himalayan Bears, Sitatunga Antelope, Nyala Antelope, Grant Zebra, Dromedary Camels, Capuchin Monkeys, Grivet Monkeys.
