One of the only non-profit, privately-owned zoos in New England, Lupa Zoo is home to a wide range of animals. Discover everything from Himalayan bears to ring-tailed lemurs at this unique and special conservation and educational institution. One of the highlights of Lupa Zoo is the Family Farm, which provides kids with the opportunity to see domestic animals, such as goats and sheep, up close and personal. They even get to pet them, making for an exciting and memorable experience. In addition, Lupa Zoo features animal shows along with animal feeding programs. While these activities are designed for entertainment purposes, they also provide great opportunities to get across very important conservation messages.
A great way to remember your day at Lupa Zoo is to take home a souvenir. And it’s easy to do simply by visiting the Lupa Zoo Store at the Western Barn, which is located by the main entrance. The store delivers a wide range of top-notch items. These run the gamut from animal science books to realistic miniature animals. When you purchase something from the Lupa Zoo Store, you’re helping to support many Lupa Zoo programs. Lupa Zoo is open seven days a week, weather permitting. Zoo hours are from 10:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. Admission is $10 for adults (13 and over), $9.00 for seniors (62 and over), $8.00 for kids (2-12), and there is no charge for kids under two years old. Yearly memberships, which are great for families of four, are available for $90.00.
