National Zoo & Aquarium

Bad Weather Conditions

During very bad weather conditions (extreme cold, wind, rain or heat) we give any animals that need additional protection access to their night houses, which means that a few animals may not be visible. Most have adequate heating, cover and protection in their yards, but refer to our Facebook or InstagramΒ pages if you wish to check if any have access on any particular day during extreme weather events.
