NEWS & EVENTS

Check out what’s happening at Caldwell Zoo! Here you’ll find both recent news and information on upcoming events at the Zoo.

                                otterly adorable

Pearl, the otter, arrived on our doorstep after being deemed non-releasable by a local rehabber. Although we don't know for sure, we believe she is about two years old. After she completes her 30-day quarantine, our zookeepers will slowly introduce her to our current group of otters.
As you can see, Pearl is a playful bundle of joy, always excited to see her caretakers!

 Bobcat pair

This past spring, the zoo welcomed two new bobcats from Southwest Conservation Center. Our new brother and sister pair is about a year and a half old. They were orphaned and hand-raised, so they were not able to be released into the wild. As of right now, they are on exhibit every other day. They have not yet been introduced to our older pair but our zookeepers are slowing working on acquainting them.
