What is there to do?

One of the country's top-ranked zoos, Audubon Zoo offers a host of amazing animal-tastic experiences for the whole family, all geared around nature.

At Audubon Zoo, you'll find an exotic mix of animals from around the globe, all living in engaging natural habitats and lush gardens. There are a number of exhibits at the zoo, where kids can learn about all the various creatures of the world.

The Gorilla Troop is home to the endangered Western lowland gorilla, and the perfect place for kids to learn about conservation, and why it's so important. 

You can explore the African Savanna with those exotic wonders including the long necked giraffe, or see the magical elephants of Asia.

Have you ever wanted to explore a bamboo village with animals around every turn? Have you ever wanted to meet more than 30 species of birds in a stunning Aviary?

Perhaps you LOVE those coloful flamingos, or want to take a peek what lies beneath the swamps of Louisiana? 

Make some time to check out the many shows, encounters and experiences that Audobon Zoo have to offer! And don't forget, we haven't even started on the fun carousel, or the Cool Zoo splash park that might tickle your fancy!
