The Navajo Nation Zoological & Botanical Park
The Navajo Nation Zoological & Botanical Park Review
Amid the sandstone monoliths on the border between Arizona and New Mexico, the Navajo Nation Zoological & Botanical Park displays about 50 species of domestic and wild animals, birds, and amphibians that figure in Navajo legends, as well as examples of plants used by traditional people. Most of the animals here were brought in as orphans or after sustaining injuries—they include black bears, mountain lions, Mexican gray wolves, bobcats, cougars, golden eagles, Gila monsters, and prairie rattlesnakes. It's the nation's only Native American–owned zoo.
