Our Eden Animal Experience at the museum has just added some new creatures into our ever-growing collection. When you visit, you may just be able to meet some of them during our daily animal encounters.
Some of the new additions include:
A great way for your children to get to meet some of these cool creatures God made, as they are also taught to think with a biblical worldview, is at our Explore Zoology full-day workshop program on April 19, 2019. Students grades 4 through high school will study zoology, animal kinds, and taxonomy (the science of animal classification) through close-up animal encounters, animal enrichment creation, and a private zoo tour. Spots fill up very quickly for these full-day events and the cost is only $15. Learn more and register your child at CreationMuseum.org.
You can also meet many of them when you visit Eden Animal Experience or through an animal encounter (both are included with your general admission) during a visit to the Creation Museum and Ark Encounter.
A Sad Goodbye
We are sad to announce that Skippy, our Bennet’s wallaby that many guests have enjoyed meeting at the Creation Museum, died recently. Leanne, the manager of Eden Animal Experience, shared her thoughts on Skippy’s passing:
We live in a fallen world, and, because of sin, animals do not live forever. Unfortunately, this past week, the Eden Animal Experience lost their beloved Bennett’s wallaby, Skippy. Skippy was a favorite among zookeepers and staff for ten years (normal wallaby lifespan) here at the Creation Museum. As a joey, he was rejected by his mother and was not expected to survive. However, the zookeepers stepped in to hand-raise him and to provide around-the-clock care for months. He survived to become one of the most friendly and beloved animals in the zoo. Skippy will be greatly missed.
While you will no longer be able to see Skippy, you can meet Boomer, our hand-raised Bennett’s wallaby who joined the zoo collection this past year. He’s adorable and Leanne said he’s doing well after losing his buddy and enjoying the extra attention and toys from his keepers. Guests love interacting with him and I’m sure you will too.
I encourage you to plan your visit to the Creation Museum near Cincinnati at CreationMuseum.org, and the Ark Encounter, 45 minutes away, each with its own zoo.
Thanks for stopping by and thanks for praying,
