Paramus  NJ, last Friday the County celebrated the grand opening of the Bergen County Zoo’s new Red Wolf exhibit! This 10,000 square foot enclosure is especially unique because the Zoo will now take on an important role in conserving one of the most endangered species on the planet with only 248 Red Wolves left, and just nine living in the wild.

This Month is National Wolf Month  and  the Bergen County Parks System has always prided itself on its education and conservation efforts, but it has always looked for ways to do more. The Zoo wanted to create a space that would help teach the public more about animals from this region, while engaging in desperately needed conservation efforts. Come visit Rich and Shane in their new home and learn what you can do to help save red wolves.
Nestled in the lively town of Paramus, the Bergen County Zoo is a green oasis in a busy world. This Zoo is located in Van Saun Park, a name that has been in the area since the 1600’s. This scenic Zoo and Park is a great escape from the perils of life.  The park has a playground, pavilions, dog park, sports and open fields, a pond, lots of history, and of course the Bergen County Zoo. Stop by sometime to relax and take a deep breath of fresh air, learn that charm that has drawn people to this place, and appreciate the world and animals around you!

  1. Is the “red wolf” a scientifically-confirmed distinct vulpine species, or merely a same-species regional variant? I could clarify my question. If, however, someone is familiar with this subtle aspect or “wrinkle” associated with the protection and conservation of animals purportedly on the brink of disappearing from the planet, I’d appreciate hearing what you might have to say. In any event, this development is more than enough reason to pay another visit to the zoo at Van Saun County Park if one hasn’t been there for a while.

  2. Beautiful animal
