Living Treasures Wild Animal Park

 
Living Treasures “Wild” Animal Park Moraine provides a unique interactive experience that allows visitors to get closer to the animals than ever before. From glass-fronted exhibits to a walk-through aviary, it offers many ways for guests to meet our friendly animals. Some of the animals at the zoo include leopards, tortoises, alpacas, alligators, monkeys, foxes, rabbits, cattle, and countless birds. Hand feed the giraffes, bottle feed our babies, and take a photo with a kangaroo! You can even ride on a pony or camel, feed alligators, and meet animals in the Education Center. The zoo also has a playground and picnic area, and petting zoos. Educational tours are offered in the spring and fall, and our Office Manager will work with you to customize your group trip. Traveling zoo programs also available to come to you!
