Virginia Zoo just got some support for their World of Reptiles exhibit

NORFOLK — As part of the Virginia Zoo’s Defining Moments Capital Campaign, the Bank of America Charitable Foundation donated $10,000 for the zoo’s World of Reptiles and Friends.

The campaign supported the renovations to the zoo’s World of Reptiles and Friends that opened in June.

“We are grateful for our outstanding partnership with Bank of America. Their significant contributions to the Virginia Zoo allow us to increase educational opportunities to the thousands of children who visit the Zoo each year which is core to our mission,” said Greg Bockheim, executive director of the Virginia Zoo.

The Zoo offers a one-of-a-kind relaxed and fun environment for learning to nearly 500,000 visitors from around Hampton Roads each year.

In its latest addition, guests can wander the 13,000-square-foot World of Reptiles building and meet its more than 300 new inhabitants, from frogs to endangered crocodiles.
