Endangered Species Day

Each year on the third Friday in May…

…Is Endangered Species day! We’re proud to be the home of over 30 threatened or endangered species. From the lightning-fast African cheetahs to the majestic reticulated giraffes, the playful red-ruffed lemurs, to the iconic Texas Horned Lizards, each one holds a special place in our hearts and reminds us of the critical importance of conservation measures.

Join us in raising awareness about the challenges these magnificent creatures face in the wild, from habitat loss to poaching. When you visit the Zoo, you get to experience the wonder of these incredible animals up close and play a vital role in supporting wildlife conservation efforts around the globe.

Celebrate Endangered Species Day this Friday and all throughout May.
