Asian Passage and Arrival Experience

Under the leadership of F. Dixon Brooke, Jr., the Board has approved an $18 million goal to build a new front entrance, plaza and park area, along with the new Asian Passage exhibit. This campaign will address the critical needs of the existing Predator Building and will include a partial renovation.  The Birmingham Zoo is a 60-year-old facility in need of updating to maintain contemporary standards and accreditation status.
