There will be live specimen and fun games!

While Kevin oversees a diverse collection of reptiles and amphibians, focusing on native species, he is also heavily involved in the management of one of the Zoo’s Signature Animal Programs, the Panamanian Golden Frog. Kevin and the Zoo have spent the last 20 years honing their expertise with this species and working towards reintroducing it to the wild.
