We appreciate all the thoughts and concerns regarding the incident at the zoo last evening. As of right now, we are respecting the privacy of our staff. We can assure you that “Dasa” the orangutan was contained the entire time and was never out of her exhibit. Additionally, the keeper was at no time ever inside the exhibit with the orangutan. There will be no actions taken against “Dasa” the orangutan, and we hope for full recovery of our keeper. The situation is being fully investigated.
Please see more statements from CEO Scott Mitchell in the Go Erie article below.
Your Erie Zoo is having summer camps!
However, there will be many modifications and new regulations due to Covid-19. It is our goal to keep your child and our staff as healthy and safe as possible. We ask that you please review all the new changes on our website before signing your child up for camp.
Due to the current uncertainty and Erie Zoo closure caused by the Covid-19 virus, we have made the decision to temporarily postpone GalapaZOOza 2020 - The Roaring 20's. Please see more below.
