Since we didn't have quite enough construction going on with the Giraffe Exhibit Expansion, (insert sarcasm here :), we have just started prepping the area for the Conservation Carousel that is opening this spring. We are very excited about the progress, but admittedly, it's not much to look at...yet.
When you enter the Zoo the construction is on your left side. Right now, it's just a large circular hole that is about a foot below ground level. The construction guys have started cutting and digging trenches for electrical and making wood forms for some concrete.
If you visit the Zoofari Market gift store you can take a look at two of our actual carousel animals that will be part of the ride. There is a flamingo and jaguar and they are just gorgeous!
