Welcome to the (Future) Shenandoah Valley's Premier Zoological Park!
Fauna...Take a peek at life!
Beauty and the Beasts...Meet the wild
We built a zoo, is my family's plan to make a difference in animal conservation, education, and the decreasing number of species that exist on earth. We are in the very beginning stages of our mission. However, it is never too early to start helping the animals of the world.
My names Alex, and my family and friends are very passionate about this project. We want to establish a biological park that benefits the whole community. Animal Conservation as well as rehabilitation and reproduction is our main goal for our animal friends. However, we also want to Educate our fellow public about these wonderful animals within their own natural environments.
From all walks of life, we want to enlighten and educate everyone about the world around them. From Aviaries full of tropical colorful birds to a Reptile Discovery Outpost to Think Tanks,and Aquariums full of the oceans and waters life, we want everyone to leave with a sense of understanding and awareness of these wonderful animals that call earth their home.
