Today, the Memphis Zoo is one of Memphis’ highest attended attractions. The Zoo’s conservation programs circle the globe – from cooperative programs in China for giant pandas to local efforts to save the Louisiana pine snake. More than 90,000 children visit the Zoo on annual field trips and more than 100,000 people visit on free admission every year.
Memphis Zoo's mission is: Create Adventures. Save Wildlife. Aware that the zoo of tomorrow begins today, our staff and volunteers are dedicated to providing a naturalistic and enriching sanctuary for our animals, and a clean, friendly, entertaining and educational experience for our guests. Together, we are building one of the world’s great zoos.
