We’re excited to announce our next big project!

Plans are underway to raise $2.5 million for the renovation of the Buffalo Zoo’s historic Reptile House. In 1942, the Zoo’s Reptile House debuted and was deemed the finest in the country.

It was designed by renowned zoologist Marlin Perkins who was the Buffalo Zoo’s curator at the time.

Fast forward to now and we can’t wait to get started on the renovation.

You won’t believe our eyes! The Zoo plans to replace all of the animal enclosures within the gallery space with new state-of-the-art exhibits.

Enhanced graphics and hands-on interactive displays will help to make the visitor experience engaging and educational. Two new conservation pods will showcase the Buffalo Zoo’s ongoing work breeding endangered amphibians. The plan also includes an expansive area for Komodo dragons, the largest lizard in the world!
