  • The Guyana zoo is a relatively small zoo, but it hosts a diversity of local wildlife, including several protected species, such as the Scarlet Macaw, Jaguar, Giant River Otter, Harpy Eagle, and West Indian Manatee. The also hosts a petting zoo where animals rescued from abusive environments are rehabilitated and housed, and persons are allowed to buy food to feed these animals. Additionally, there is a portion of land in the adjacent Botanical Gardens that is set aside for the zoo's monkey island, where several capuchin monkeys live outside of enclosures.
