What We Do Rhino Yard Expansion

Daniel Maltz Rhino Reserve

The Daniel Maltz Rhino Reserve more than doubles the size of the Zoo’s habitat for its critically-endangered Eastern black rhinoceros herd, offering enhanced animal care features and an expanded, fully-accessible viewing deck. 

Rhinoreserve

The Reserve is named in honor of Daniel Maltz's philanthropic gift. Equally generous support from The Walter E. and Jean C. Kalberer Foundation funded the project’s Walter Kalberer Bull Barn and Jean Kalberer Rhino Yard.

The expansion includes a second indoor rhino barn and introduces several new complexities for the rhinos including overhead shade and misting areas, a mud wallow and rubbing posts. The area also features a new, fully accessible viewing deck for guests.

Cleveland Metroparks Zoo has had significant success in breeding critically-endangered Eastern black rhinoceros including the birth of two calves in 2018. Eastern black rhinoceros are critically endangered and less than 750 remain in the wild due to poaching and habitat loss.
 
Construction on the Daniel Maltz Rhino Reserve began in September 2019. The $2.5 million project was fully funded through the Cleveland Zoological Society. Since 2011, Cleveland Metroparks Zoo and Cleveland Zoological Society have invested $35 million in larger and more complex animal habitats, including African Elephant Crossing in 2011, Rosebrough Tiger Passage in 2016 and Asian Highlands in 2018.
