Kingdoms of Asia is Fresno Chaffee Zoo’s latest project thanks to Measure Z. This immersive exhibit will feature the return of sloth bears to the Zoo as well as several species that are new to the Zoo including Asian small-clawed otters and tomistoma or Sunda gharial. This project broke ground in September 2020 and is currently under construction.
Phased openings will begin in 2022. When completed, Kingdoms of Asia will include new play areas, a cafe and larger, more natural habitats for animals. We look forward to welcoming guests to this new area meant to inspire and educate our community on the geography, people, animals and conservation efforts throughout Southeast Asia.
