Do more than see rhinos. Look out for them.



When 70% of Washington voters approved the nation’s first citizen-led ban on wildlife trafficking, you took a stand for rhinos.

Now Woodland Park Zoo opens Assam Rhino Reserve, a special exhibition where you can connect face to face with the animals who inspire us to do more.


Opening May 5, 2018

Meet the greater one-horned rhinoceros, one of the world’s most iconic symbols of illegal wildlife trade. Worth more than the sum of its parts, the rhino is making a comeback thanks to conservation heroes who are putting a stop to trafficking.

But our work isn’t done. When a species is on a thin line between here and gone, it will take all of us standing together to protect what we truly value. Will you join us?

Save the date for opening day celebrations





When you visit the zoo, you help us protect India and Nepal’s greater one-horned rhino, and the diverse species that share its habitat.




At Assam Rhino Reserve, you will encounter two young rhinos up close and some of their native neighbors: Asian brown tortoises and demoiselle cranes.
