We are pleased to announce that the Jerusalem Biblical Zoo has been chosen to host filming of a new television series for teens from the Kan Educational channel.

We cannot share too much information at this point, but we can tell you that it's a suspense series, which combines many of our core values.

It's so important to share the messages of conservation of nature and living creatures.

We have worked intensely with the production team to ensure that filming will cause as little disruption as possible to our visitors during their time at the zoo.

Below are changes to the hours of operation at the zoo's exhibits during the month of May.

May 8 - 29: Noah's Ark Visitors' Center will be closed to visitors. The restrooms at the Ark will be open as usual.

May 10 - 12: There may be intermittent disruption at the zoo entrance; we thank you for your patience and cooperation.

May 17: Between 12:30 PM and 5:30 PM, there will be partial blockage in front of the female elephant exhibit, however the exhibit will remain open to the public.

May 18: The kangaroo exhibit will be closed to visitors. The rest of the Australian Yard will remain open as usual.

May 22 - 23: The children's petting zoo and playground will be closed to the public.

May 25: The orangutan exhibit will open at 10:45 AM.

May 26: between 9:00 AM and 1:00 PM, the zoo train will travel only to the elephant exhibit.

Access to the Noah's Ark Visitors' Center will be closed.

We thank you for your understanding and excitedly await the series premiere.
