Welcome to our new website!
First and foremost, we’d like to thank the New Jersey Department of State Division of Travel & Tourism, the Cumberland County Cultural & Heritage Commission and the Tourism Advisory Council for awarding us the grant that has allowed us to finally create our own online presence! Please bookmark these sites for all the latest information on events, activities, and things to do in your community. We’ve also posted links to these sites in our “links” section and will be posting local events we think our zoo community will especially enjoy.
Our website will be a work in progress for a while, but all of our pertinent information is up and running and we are currently working on streamlining some of our fundraising programs to make it easier than ever to Adopt-an-Animal, join the Cohanzick Zoological Society and make online donations!
Please take a moment to check out the 1st Annual David A. Levitsky Golf Classic to benefit the animals of the Cohanzick Zoo in our upcoming events section. It’s our Cohanzick Zoological Society’s biggest fundraiser of the year! We’re looking for golfers, hole sponsors, and door prize donations!
Along the bottom of the page you will find links to our facebook page as well as some of our other social network pages. The icons at the top of our articles will allow you to share these articles on your facebook and twitter accounts!
Thanks so much for visiting! Check back often as we will be adding much more content, information and services over the next few weeks.
Meet Our Newest Additions…
Okay, so our newest additions don’t actually breathe, or eat, or move around all that much…but the kids love them just the same! Thanks to the efforts of Bridgeton Mayor Albert Kelly and his generous friends, the zoo is now home to some life size animal statuary (and maybe one larger than life gorilla!). The larger than life gorilla (dubbed Gordy at our recent dedication and Recreation Department sponsored naming contest) has spent his first week here festooned with visitors of all ages and providing fantastic photo ops.
This whole new generation of childhood zoo memories has been made possible through the wonderful donation of Bridgeton natives, Ed & Carmen Rivera. “To see the faces and smiles of the kids mean everything to us.” ~ Ed Rivera. Mr. Rivera spoke briefly at the dedication about growing up here in Bridgeton, his memories of the zoo, and how he was so very happy & fortunate to be in a position now to give back to the community. The Riveras then surprised us with an additional $1000 donation!!!
