The Topeka Zoo is a gem in a small package. Even with a mere 250 animals this park manages to attract over 200,000 visitors every year. Its main feature is the indoor tropical rainforest, one of the first of its kind in the U.S. One of the zoo's pet projects is the conservation of the Monarch butterfly and its migration.
The tigers in this zoo are under surveillance and can be watched from a brewery across town. The proceeds from a IPA at this brewery fund this tiger and it’s enclosure.
