While standing in what will be a concrete viewing area, Ken Nieland waves his hands excitedly as he describes the rocks and plants that snow leopards will soon play on in an exhibit at the Micke Grove Zoo.

Nieland, the zoo's director, said he has been waiting for the improvements since the zoo lost its accreditation from the Association of Zoos and Aquariums in 2006.

    The zoo is an absolute treasure. I visited last weekend, and even though it was hot, the animals seemed very comfortable and were out in the viewing areas of their enclosures. The zoo has made huge improvements in providing suitable habitat, etc. since I went as a school kid in the '80's. The Lorakeet exhibit was exceptional, and the zoo staff was very attentive to the birds' needs (monitoring guests so as not to upset them). The fact that there are new zoo babies (twin Golden Capuchins?) is a testament to the fact that the zoo is doing something right. They do need to accept ATM or credit cards, though.
