Palm Beach Zoo contemplates their drought strategy

The Palm Beach Zoo is strategizing to make sure animals are not affected by the current drought that is still gripping the state. Although the rainy season is clearly on the way, as evidenced by the recent return of daily showers, the extremely harsh dry season has taken it’s toll.

The zoo has two wells that help to replenish the moats and lakes that keep the animals and visitors separated. One is functioning, while the other is currently being repaired after the zoo noticed a problem with the well that sits on the western side of the park.

The Palm Beach Zoo is reaching out to the South Florida Water Management District as well as the City of West Palm Beach as part of their drought strategy plan, and hope to come to an agreement soon to help keep the waterways functioning as the western well is being fixed.
