Roger Williams Park Zoo strives to engage guests in an extraordinary and unique educational experience to improve their understanding and appreciation for the natural world. Your donation helps us to continue to develop new world-class exhibits, make significant contributions to conservation and serve the community as a valuable source of environmental education, recreation and economic development.
With the support of donors like you, Ramone and Finley, the howler monkeys, have made the journey from Houston and Cleveland to their new home at the Zoo. Ramone and Finley may be the first animals who have arrived, but they won’t be alone in the Rainforest!
Titi monkeys, macaws, giant river otters, blue crowned motmots, and dart frogs are just a few of the animals that will become their new neighbors. And we need YOU to bring them home!
Every animal offers something unique to the amazing biodiversity of the Amazonian rainforest. As you know, human activities are threatening the rainforest by causing the destruction of habitat for thousands of species. Our new rainforest exhibit will show how everyone plays a role in sustainability. From native peoples and animals to modern industry and people just like you - We are ALL faces of the rainforest.
Ramone and Finley are busy settling in and getting to know each other. And while they wait for the arrival of new friends and the completion of the Rainforest exhibit, they’re staying active off-exhibit. We can’t wait for you to meet them this summer!
You make a difference. You are the face of the Rainforest. Which animal can you help bring to the Rainforest exhibit now?
