A wildlife park in the north Georgia mountains is seeking donations to repair damage from recent flooding.

Officials at the North Georgia Zoo and Petting Farm say many of the animals were evacuated to dry ground when heavy rains led to flooding in the past two weeks. The zoo near Cleveland is also known as Wildlife Wonders-Zoo to You.

The flooding left bridges that were washed away and fences that need repair. Zoo officials say a few walkways were also washed away and will have to be rebuilt.

The zoo is home to alligators, zebras, camels and kangaroos.
