A lot of people went to the Living Desert this year

The Living Desert Zoo and Gardens is out with their attendance for the past year and more people visited the place then ever before.

The Zoo welcomed 459,784 guests and members as of June 30, making their 2017-2018 season their biggest ever, surpassing last year’s attendance record of 420,327.

And the Living Desert may top that mark for the 2018-2019 season as they will be unveiling their new Crossroads of Conservation complex, which will serve as the Zoo’s new entrance. The area will include self-serve ticketing kiosks, plenty of service windows, and a new gift shop and Living Legacy Endowment garden.
