The Amarillo Zoo is always looking to improve and add new features and new animals.  Coming up in 2018 and new phase at the Amarillo Zoo will begin.  The Amarillo Zoo will be redoing their children's area.

The first phase of the facelift will to build a barn.  Plus, they are planning including a petting zoo where patrons can pet and even groom the animals.   Plans also include a parrot exhibit and a Australian themed area with kangaroos, wallabies, and emus.

The Amarillo Zoo and Friends of the Amarillo Zoo will be holding different fundraisers to raise the additional funds to make this facelift the best it can be for the zoo and for our community.

They are hoping to start with the renovations next year.
