The New York State Zoo at Thompson Park will be closed indefinitely as staff determine the extent of damage from the weekend’s ice storm.

In an email to media, marketing director Kurt T. Hunt said that though some trees were damaged, the zoo’s animals weathered the storm well and its exhibits avoided significant damage.

He said the zoo will remain closed until staff have had a chance to evaluate the safety of both exhibits and walkways.

Mr. Hunt said that the zoo’s Winter Zoofari camp is still scheduled for 9:30 a.m. Thursday.
