Rizzo's Wildlife World

 
Come visit our indoor zoo located in Roxbury Twp., NJ! We are open 6 days a week, rain or shine. Our wildlife center offers guided tours led by our expert wildlife educators, where you will have up-close encounters with a variety of wildlife. Unlike any other zoo, here at Rizzo's Wildlife World you can feed, touch, and even hold select animals. It is our goal to bring you more multi-sensory, interactive experiences with wildlife than you have ever encountered in any other zoo; and to dispel myths and fears surrounding our rescued and captive-born animals. Whether you visit our wildlife center or we bring our animals to you, we guarantee to leave you with fascinating knowledge about a variety of animals from around the world, a smile on your face and a new passion in your heart.
