The Fort Rickey Children's Discovery Zoo is a special kind of zoo with a focus on children and fun. Everything we do here centers on the understanding that, for kids, passive observation of zoo animals is not enough. Children need to be engaged.
They need to use all their senses to explore, manipulate and discover. Although our focus is clearly on fun, we also have a higher goal as expressed in the following Statement of Philosophy.
We, at Fort Rickey, are committed to the belief that children, who have experienced the joy of kind and gentle interaction with animals, are more likely to become adults who care about wildlife and conservation.
Wolves Howling- Press Play Below To See The Video
I recently recorded a video clip of the woods near the wolf exhibit.
You can't see the wolves but you get to hear their wonderful howling.
It is hard to believe that so much sound can come from just two wolves!
Thank you for visiting our website. Enjoy your tour. We look forward to seeing you and your family at Fort Rickey this season.
