Asian Gardens 2

Leopards and tigers and bears, oh my! Get up close to the many rare and endangered animals in the Asian Gardens. Watch as the tigers explore the water's edge. Observe the Indian rhinos at play, then come across the Clouded leopards and all their spots.

Lorikeet Landing


Come lounge with the lorikeets! In this interactive habitat, there's nothing between you and your brilliantly-plumed friends. Lorikeets are playful and friendly by nature. Lorikeets love nectar and can be easily enticed to sit on your hand while they drink up the sweet juice.   While you're there, learn how wild lorikeet habitats are disappearing – and how you can help protect them.

Sulawesi Aviary


The Sulawesi Aviary features rare Asian birds and gentle forest creatures. Listen to the peaceful waters of the fountain as you spot each animal from the viewing platform and learn more about them. There's lots to see here, so be sure to bring your camera.
