Winthrop B. Reed, III and the Saint Louis Zoo Unveil Name of Saint Louis Zoo WildCare ParkDecember 10, 2020
On Thursday, December 10, 2020, Lewis Rice member Winthrop B. Reed, III and members of the Saint Louis Zoo executive staff unveiled the name of Saint Louis Zoo WildCare Park on its north St. Louis County campus. As Chairman of the St. Louis Zoological Park Subdistrict Commission, Win announced the Kent Family Conservation and Animal Science Center leadership gift in which conservationists will work to "sustain populations of endangered species, conduct research and engage in applied conservation programs."
"Together, the public experience and the Kent Family Conservation and Animal Science Center will merge applied science with intriguing dynamic visitor interactions – both are cutting-edge and unique,” said Win. “We believe this is the first facility of its kind in the world and will doubtless be a game-changer for endangered species as well as for north St. Louis County and the region.”
The Kent family's generosity will allow for state-of-the-art habitats designed for conservation breeding of endangered species from around the world. The Zoo estimates a public opening of Saint Louis Zoo WildCare Park as early as 2026.
