Kansas City Zoo has shaped its 202 acres into a sanctuary for animals—one that replicates the natural environs of its residents. In fact, ape expert Jane Goodall once even complimented that Kansas City has "one of the finest chimpanzee exhibits in North America." Find these hominids alongside gazelles and hippos in the African Plains exhibit, before watching a sea-lion show and feeding lorikeets.
City of Topeka Zoo in Topeka is a great place for guests of all ages to learn about the many animals of the world.
Parking is plentiful, so patrons can feel free to bring their vehicles.
This zoo is a must-see attraction in the area. Head over today and see what it has to offer.
The stresses of the city seem light years away for guests who retreat to Screamin' Oaks Farm, a working farm with goats, pigs, peacocks, chickens, cows, geese, quail, donkeys, and hound dogs. Visitors meet the farm's fleet of white and black goats, whose milk is sold onsite and also made into creamy chèvre goat cheese and homemade ice cream. Farmhands foster introductions to creatures large and small, letting guests milk the goats themselves and pet the furry mane of a young donkey. Turtles idle along in their own dedicated habitat as peacocks stalk the grounds, opening and expanding their turquoise plumage when a mate is nearby or when they want to take up two seats on tractor rides.
The scenes inside Sea Life's tanks are like a Where's Waldo? book come to life, except the protagonists within the underwater tableau aren't awkwardly dressed like candy canes. Thousands of fish swirl through the waters, and you could easily spend hours picking out specific species.
Seahorses, on the other hand, swim in open view. So does other marine life—especially once you enter the ocean tunnel, which simulates the experience of walking across the ocean floor. Blacktip reef sharks roam overhead and flash their menacing teeth at the cownose stingrays, who appear to smile back.
The aquarium's more interactive attractions explain what makes undersea life so appealing. At the touchpool, for instance, education hosts explain the lives of coastal creatures, letting visitors touch everything in the exhibit, including sea stars and hermit crabs.
Even though Sea Life's Kansas City location holds more than 260,000 gallons of water, only so many creatures can call the aquarium home. Sea Life operates more than 40 aquariums and 3 marine sanctuaries in more than 11 countries. To help marine life outside its walls, Sea Life also runs and participates in many conservation campaigns and programs. Sea Life aquariums rescue seals, find permanent homes for disabled sea turtles, and breed nine kinds of seahorses to help protect the endangered species from extinction.
