PEORIA, Ill. (WYZZ) — At the Peoria Zoo it’s important to keep things fresh and exciting! To do this, animals may be transferred to and from different zoos.

On Good Day Central Illinois we spoke with the Director of the Peoria Zoo, Yvonne Strode, about what animal transfers are, why they are so crucial for the zoo, and how exactly they work.

To find out more about upcoming events at the zoo, you can visit the Peoria Zoo website for more information.
