Snow Days at Busch Gardens Williamsburg

Schools are closed! You got to stay home for the day because there are several inches of snow on the ground and you are snuggled in under a warm blanket with coffee and a great movie. It is a different story for our dedicated and passionate zoological team. Our animal care professionals are putting on several layers of clothing and braving the weather and the commute to take care of our zoological collection.

In their Natural Habitat, a gray wolf lives about 5-7 years. In a zoological setting, their life-span can more than double1 to 12-16 years2. If you have been visiting Busch Gardens and Wolf Haven for the past decade, you may have had the privilege to see one of our resident wolves, Lakota. He will be turning 15 on April 10!

Happy New Year - Celebrating the Year of the Sheep at Busch Gardens

Happy New Year to All!

You may wonder why I am wishing you all a Happy New Year, well last Thursday marked the beginning of the Chinese New Year. As we say good bye to the year of the horse, we usher in the year of the Sheep (goat or ram). This spring festival dates back more than 2000 years. It is said that all of the animals were asked to meet on New Year’s Day to celebrate and only 12 animals arrived for the celebration. To reward all of the animals that did show up, a year was named after each animal.

Before we start looking ahead, though, we thought we'd take a look behind and see how the last year shaped up. 2014 saw Busch Gardens and Water Country opening new attractions, celebrating anniversaries and of course, making lots of memories in the process. Here on the parks' blog, we featured a lot of fantastic posts about the behind-the-scenes goings on of the park.
