2003

The new Animal Health Center was completed in 2003.  Large windows into the animal treatment and surgery rooms allowed visitors to gain a whole new perspective on animal care procedures performed on our collection. Other additions included the Brown Bear Den and Australian Outback picnic sites.  This year also marked the first successful reproduction of saltwater fish in the history of the Zoo.  Successful reproduction of marine fish is a rare event.
