Five years ago, the transformation began. The Minnesota Zoo launched Heart of the Zoo, a comprehensive campaign that combines support from the State of Minnesota and the private sector to create a world-leading Zoo. To date, this extraordinary partnership has exemplified the very best of what can be accomplished when our State and our communities work together. Since the campaign launched, we have secured and invested more than $72 million, creating an institution that can be a point of pride for all Minnesotans.
Summer 2011: Opened 3M Penguins of the African Coast, Cargill Environmental Education Center, Target® Learning Center (indoor theatre) and new South Entry.
