Two very cute and unusual animals will call the Great Plains Zoo home for the next several months. The two Koalas, Moki and Burra, are on loan from the San Diego Zoo and will be a part of the Zoo’s “Koala Wilds” exhibit, open from May 13 through Labor Day. The Koalas can be viewed daily, free with Zoo admission.
Koalas are native to the eucalyptus forests of southeastern and eastern Australia, and they are an uncommon animal found in zoos. Only 10 zoos in the United States care for Koalas, with the closest zoo in Ohio.
Visit the Zoo online at www.greatzoo.org or call 605-367-7003 for more admission hours and information about the Zoo and Museum.
This is a recurring event.
