Zoo Miami will have a new look on Wednesday.

While a new entrance and Everglades exhibit are under construction, park visitors will enter through a temporary portal entry located west of the current entrance during the demolition of the current entry and the construction of a new front entry and a new exhibit, Florida: Mission Everglades.

The temporary entrance will be near the Wings of Asia Aviary and the Children’s Zoo. The flamingo exhibit will be closed until the new front entry opens. Construction is slated to last 14 months.

The zoo's website also has been redesigned. The website remains at the address http://www.zoomiami.org
