Here in New England

Zoo New England is committed to the preservation of the natural world, including what’s right in our own backyard. And it’s not hard to miss. With a rich natural diversity including lakes, rivers, forests, alpine mountains, the Atlantic coast, and a perpetual regeneration that four seasons bring, New England wildlife abounds.
