We Are Growing
Exciting fun is just around the corner!
Audubon Nature Institute is growing with so much new to do coming up soon.
Audubon’s elephants make specially scheduled public appearances as they (and we!) await completion of their brand new, state-of-the-art exhibit. Jean and Panya meet their adoring public between 1:30 and 3:30 each day just across from the white tiger in Asian Domain, weather and staffing permitting. When not in public view, they’re taking it easy off-exhibit behind-the-scenes, getting ready for the big ribbon-cutting on their new habitat in early 2015.
- Embraceable Zoo
Audubon’s popular Children’s Zoo relocates right next to Monkey Hill. All your favorite goats, sheep and other critters will be waiting for you in a fantastic African village setting in May, 2014. Meanwhile, you can see many of the residents of Embraceable Zoo from the Asian Domain boardwalk.
- Asian Domain
While we work to expand Asian Domain, you can still visit beautiful leopards, wave to the sun bears, visit Audubon’s famous white tiger and watch the playful babirusa and small-clawed otters as we make one of Audubon’s most beautiful areas even more special. Opening early 2015.
- Cool Zoo
Can’t get enough of Cool Zoo? You’re in luck! Cool Zoo expands by an acre and a half, with the Gator Run river ride and more water fun than ever before. Cool Zoo is even cooler than before – opening 2015.
While we are busy creating new adventures for you throughout Audubon Zoo, remember to swing by two of Audubon Zoo’s most famous exhibits. The Louisiana Swamp is a true swamp experience in the middle of the city, with gators galore and the Cypress Knee Café if you want to grab a snack. Right next to the Swamp, Jaguar Jungle features animals like lively spider monkeys, anteaters and the incredible jaguars, exhibited amid Central America stone structures carved to look just like the originals.
Audubon Aquarium of the Americas
Great Maya Reef
- Audubon Aquarium of the Americas invites you to begin your aquarium adventure in an entirely new way, with a breathtaking Great Maya Reef experience, setting the stage for new features to come throughout the Aquarium. While the Caribbean Tunnel is closed for construction of the new experience, you can grab a sneak peek of the progress through specially created portholes. Check us out! Great Maya Reef opens March, 2014. Meanwhile, visit Geaux Fish, a playful and engaging spot on the 2nd floor where the fisheries of the Gulf Coast are brought to life.
Aquarium and IMAX Plaza
- You'll soon be welcomed by a delightful new Plaza experience along the Mississippi River when you visit Audubon Aquarium of the Americas! A cooling canopy of palm trees and a sweeping view of the majestic river accentuate a beautiful new 90' linear fountain. We know you'll love it! Opening Spring, 2014.
