Review for ZOOLOGICAL SOCIETY OF WASHINGTON (aka Cougar Mountain Zoo), Issaquah, WA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I wanted to write a review for a very special place, Cougar Mountain Zoo. We really can't say enough about this beautiful and serene place. We first visited the zoo 4 years ago when we found out they had 2 new baby tiger cubs. We went to the first showing of Bagheera and Vitez, 2 Bengal brothers thinking we will see how it goes. Prior to this visit we had not been to a zoo for 30 years having had sad experiences in the past. We enjoyed our day at Cougar Mountain Zoo so much so that we have been going at least weekly since our very first visit. We were so impressed with how beautiful and happy the animals are, how well educated and truly compassionate the zoo staff are that we have brought many friends to the zoo to experience it and many are now members. We love this zoo and what they are doing with education and conservation for the public. The grounds are well kept as are the habitats and the animals receive great enrichment and are obviously very loved and are happy. We highly recommend this zoo to children and adults alike and we will continue to bring people to the zoo to experience this wonderful place. We also want to acknowledge and thank Robyn Barfoot, General Curator of the zoo, for sharing her passion and knowledge with all of us. Thank you, Thank you Thank you! Debra, David and Marge

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

I would win the lottery and provide the funds for continued support of the level of care these animals receive, add cheetahs and finish their habitat and buy more land for them to expand on.
