Gladys Porter Zoo officials announced they will be closing until further notice due to COVID-19 outbreak. 

According to a release, the Zoo will be posting educational videos every day via their Facebook, Instagram and Youtube account starting Tuesday. 

Even though there have not been any confirmed cases of COVID-19 in Brownsville, the Zoo says it’s their responsibility to do what they can to help reduce the spread of the virus. 

“We know that you have concerns about our staff and animal collection, and I want to reassure you that our animal team will continue to provide excellent care for our animals,” said Dr. Burchfield, Zoo Director. “We have ample food reserves and 

medical supplies, to take care of them while we are closed.”
