ELMVALE JUNGLE ZOO – ESTABLISHED IN 1967
The original site was on 2 acres, exhibiting a few animals with mostly reptiles. In 1972 the zoo was purchased by the Persi family who has expanded the zoo to over 30 acres. With winding shaded trails you can enjoy an up close and personal experience from animals around the world.
25 additional acres has been untouched for the natural habitat reserved for animals native to this area.
Zoos play an important role in protection and conservations of wildlife.
