    A hopeful outlook for the immediate future for the zoo.

    I believe the zoo sent out a male white rhino not too long ago (2014) to the Wilds. His younger brother stayed behind at the Seneca Park location. I would expect the new exhibit to be able to showcase a breeding group.

    I actually hope it wasn't an error and they don't include gorillas. Knowing the space of the main building and the space around it, I don't think it's enough room for an outdoor exhibit for orangutan, lemur, and gorilla. Unless they want to save the gorillas from the Buffalo Zoo. ;-)

    Also, @kiraru bwana is correct about the white rhinos. Roscoe moved to the Wilds and the zoo still has Bill. Since he is in the main building, they need to build his new exhibit first so he can be relocated.

    The Seneca Park zoo has created a page on their website called Wilder Vision that details the first phase of the master plan. Some exciting news from the page is that not only is the zoo getting giraffes, zebras and a new home for their Rhino Bill, but they are going to have naked mole-rats and elephant shrews!!

    Also this year, Cold Asia will be completed and the zoo will have a new home for their snow leopards and also be getting a new species; red pandas. The outdated main building will also be demolished this year. In its place, in a few years, will be exhibits for orangutan, gorilla, and ring tailed lemur. This was my local zoo growing up so I am thrilled of all the changes they are making to enhance the lives of their animals.

    The article and all other ones that I've checked says that the zoo's looking to bring polar bears back in the future. With the zoo population so low now, it will be a while before another bear is brought yes?
