First Phase of BioPark Wide Updating
The ABQ BioPark Zoo will temporarily close its Reptile building Monday, December 26 for renovations and repairs. The Building will remain closed to the public for at least three months.
The building's heating and cooling system will be replaced with a more efficient system, giving reptiles and amphibians a more comfortable environment in hot summers and cold winters.
"It is vital we have an efficient heating and cooling system to protect the well-being of our reptiles and amphibians," said Doug Hotle, BioPark Curator of Reptiles and Amphibians.
All animals will be removed from their normal enclosures so construction can proceed without harming or bothering any animals. The Reptile building update is one of several renovations planned for the BioPark facilities.
