    I just saw on the 2016 report that they have wombats. They are getting a lot of new animals for their inventory that seems to correspond with their master plan.

    Is it online? I have been happy with the zoo because they have been getting more small to medium sized mammals which they lacked.

    I just looked at the latest studbook (2017) and I did not see Toledo mentioned.

    It was in the 2016 Annual Report in the General Zoo info on their website under new mammals.

    Kara the sloth bear has moved to Omaha according to the new studbook. It must be her exhibit the cougars are going in unless they finally get lions again.

    Did the studbook indicate how many sloth bears are now in Omaha? None were out on Feb 15 when I visited. The Sun Bears have moved out already, so they could hold more sloth bears while construction on the new sloth bear exhibit completes.

    Henry Doorly just has Kara right now. The Breeding and Transfer Plan would give info on any moves and a new one has not been posted for a while.

    Had my third visit. Got footage to cover the Reptile House, the Aviary (my favorite bird house/including shots of the newer Koala, tamarins, pacas, and sloths), covered Renee and Lucus (elephants) individually for my new series, the Arctic Encounter, and perfectly timed coverage for an incredibly thorough video on the Aquarium (my favorite zoo aquarium).

    Was anything going on? Rhino and sloth bear exhibits in particular.

    The Bactrian camels on my first time around were in their usual habitat but when I came back, they were in the indoor rhino exhibit. There was no construction on the sloth bear exhibit. There weren't really any changes other than the new Aviary residents and a couple of birds switching places.

    Toledo Zoo and ProMedica are exemplifying the old adage that together everyone achieves more through their new partnership to renovate the Zoo’s 80+ year old Museum of Science. Today, we announced details of the new partnership to re-open the WPA-era building in the spring of 2019 as a natural history museum. The new facility will have a focus on biodiversity, or the variety of life in the world, throughout the course of history shown through the lens of local habitats and wildlife along with their ties to global counterparts.

    Through their $3.5 million donation, ProMedica is generously supporting a fully collaborative effort to combine the messaging in the new Museum with the missions of both institutions to educate Museum visitors about the connections between human quality of life and wellbeing with natural biodiversity.

    We encourage everyone to stay tuned for updates on the status of the renovations. Together, we really will achieve much, much more!

    This logo has been on some of the stories of the museum. Could this be a new logo for the zoo?

    The article has been updated.

    The Toledo Zoo & Aquarium’s historic Museum of Science is being renamed the ProMedica Museum of Natural History.
