Ensuring Animal Wellness

Your zoo is accredited by the Association of Zoos & Aquariums and has earned the Humane Certified™ seal from the American Humane Conservation program. Our mission is to save species, and it starts with the wellness of the animals in our care. It’s not only our responsibility—it’s our passion.

A newborn giraffe, a growing gorilla, and a geriatric penguin all need something different to thrive. Whatever it takes, we’re here to ensure they get it. Husbandry, nutrition, veterinary and exhibit design experts work together to assure individualized care for every animal of every species across their lifespan.

Our Mission

Woodland Park Zoo saves animals and their habitats through conservation leadership and engaging experiences, inspiring people to learn, care and act.
