Gladys Porter Zoo upgrading its flamingo exhibit

BROWNSVILLE, Texas - A new exhibit is coming to Gladys Porter Zoo, and it’s sure to bring animal lovers closer to Chilean flamingos.

The grand opening of the exhibit is set for 10:30 a.m. Friday.

The Brownsville Community Improvement Corporation made the project possible. And the BCIC, together with the zoo, hopes to present visitors with a more intimate setting at the Flamingo Encounter.

The zoo plans to allow visitors to eventually hand feed the Chilean flamingos. Training from zoo keepers will make this possible.

For more information on the new Flamingo Encounter exhibit, call Gladys Porter Zoo at (956) 546-7187.
