Originally known as the Riverview Park Zoo that opened in 1894, the Henry Doorly Zoo is seen as one of the most popular tourist attractions in Omaha, Nebrasks. However, aside from being a great stop for travelers or a venue for Sunday afternoons for locals, the zoo is also well known for its great contribution and participation in animal conservation and research.
The Henry Doorly Zoo features a wide array of exhibits. With their emulation of various habitats and ecosystems, it is not surprising that they are able to offer various kinds of animals, even those who are ideal for warmer or colder climates. They have penguins, an octopus, stingrays, Australian cockatoos, Malayan tapirs, blue monkeys, tufted puffins, foxes, roadrunners, bats, aardvarks, and blind cave fish, just to name a few.
