It’s all about animals. . . and you! Learn about what it takes to run a world-class zoo, from caring for our animals to saving wildlife habitat and inspiring others to take conservation action.

Animal Care

Woodland Park Zoo is a premier facility for providing exceptional care for its animals as well as pioneering new procedures and techniques for animal care in zoos throughout the world.


Education is the key to promoting our mission of conserving animals and habitat. Our innovative and far-reaching programs teach toddlers through adults how nature can be an inspirational springboard for conservation action.


Our Field Conservation projects, 38 projects in more than 50 countries, target and reward effective programs that preserve species, protect habitat and build capacity within the areas, and among the people, who are most able to create direct action.


Every day Woodland Park Zoo saves animals and creates lifelong memories that inspire people to conserve the natural world. Every gift of time or money, large or small, helps the zoo build a better community — your community. Thank you for investing in a more sustainable future for wildlife.




Thanks to our More Wonder More Wild Campaign Donors

We’re roaring with thanks for the thousands of supporters who showed their stripes and helped us create Banyan Wilds, a stunning new home for Malyan tigers and Asian sloth bears at Woodland Park Zoo.
