New At the Roosevelt Park Zoo

Posted: Updated:
New animals, new exhibits and here's something else new at the Roosevelt Park Zoo, a non profit organization that works with the zoo is changing their name.

For more than 30, they've been known as the Greater Minot Zoological Society, but now they'll be doing business under a new name, The Minot Zoo Crew.

"The reasoning behind that is that we wanted to be something a little bit more fun, engaging for our community to identify ourselves. Also, it's inclusive because this is all of our zoos," says Becky Dewitz the Minot zoo crew development director.

"I have to get used to the new name, Minot Zoo Crew. The Zoological Society, I've known them for many years and they've been instrumental for our zoo. You look across the zoo grounds and there’s not really a facility or project that has happened in the last 20 years that they haven't been directly involved with,” says Ron Merritt the Minot park district director.

Along with a new name comes some new projects. The zoo plans to have the aviary and red panda exhibit by next season.
