Mill Mountain Zoo is a refuge to animals that are critically endangered, vulnerable, or otherwise non-releasable due to injury or captive birth. Not only do we protect and preserve the health and viability of these vulnerable animals in our guardianship. MMZoo is the region's leader in wildlife conservation. Additionally, we participate in research and species survival programs.
Our ZooChoo is hibernating for the season. Please come visit us in the Spring to take a scenic ride around the zoo!
