Animals Return to Savanna at Binder Park Zoo: Watch with Live Streaming

Although Binder Park Zoo is closed to guests, the resident animals are making their way back to their outdoor habitats to celebrate the return of spring and the 2020 zoo season, and you’re invited to join them digitally!

Animals who call the zoo’s 18-acre savanna exhibit in Wild Africa home are returning to the outdoor area for
the first time this season. Binder Park Zoo has recently installed a new live web camera (“ZooCam”), which
allows people view the zoo’s savanna from their homes.

The ZooCam will offer viewers remote access to watch giraffe, zebra, waterbuck, addra gazelle, addax and
bontebok as well as ostrich, vultures and storks enjoy the great outdoors in real time. Animals are typically
arriving on the savanna in the morning between 9:00-10:30 and return to their overnight accommodations later
in the afternoon. Inclement weather and cooler temperatures are factors that may prevent some African animal
species like the giraffe from going on exhibit, so using the weather forecast as a guide may offer better animal
sightings.

Check out the zoo’s live camera for real-time views to see what the animals in Wild Africa are up to, and stay
tuned to Binder Park Zoo’s website at www.binderparkzoo.org and Facebook page for announcements
regarding the zoo’s opening date for the 2020 season.
