Facility:Living Desert Zoo & Gardens
Description:Dedicated to the interpretation of the Chihuahuan Desert, Living Desert State Park is an indoor/outdoor living museum displaying more than 40 native animal species and hundreds of succulents from around the world. While on the 1.3 mile self-guided tour, which takes approximately 1.5 hours, visitors will discover sand dunes and mountainous areas, where pinon and juniper trees contrast with the desert floor below.

One of the park's main highlights are endangered Mexican wolves. Living Desert participates in the American Zoo and Aquarium Associationís Mexican gray wolf Species Survival Plan Program, exchanging wolves with other zoological facilities to help insure their survival.
