The Trevor Zoo, Millbrook

in Museums, Parks/Outdoor

The Trevor Zoo is dedicated to environmental education and to the conservation of the world’s wildlife through programs in habitat preservation and the captive breeding of endangered species. Visitors enter the six-acre zoo via a bridge overlooking a North American otter enclosure on one side and a large waterfowl pond with on the other. They then proceed to four zoo geographic regions: Australia, North America, Asia, and South America. Winding paths take visitors through a total of twelve different exhibits including a covered bridge with views of birds of prey as well as bamboo groves sheltering red pandas and Asian deer. The center encourages people to support wildlife conservation, to become better informed about pressing environmental problems, to make environmentally sensitive decisions regarding their life-style, and to promote conservation alerts and legislation at the local, state, and federal levels.
