What is there to do?

Kids, if you have ever wanted to see an elephant play in the water, or come face to face with a grand lion and his pride, then we should all head to Oregon Zoo pretty soon!

Oregon Zoo is all about giving kids and families those amazing animal experiences, where you can not only meet your favorite species from all over the world, but perhaps you might learn about some you had never heard of before!

The animals at the zoo come in all sorts of shapes and sizes - from the smallest bullfrog, to the tallest giraffe. There are creatures from those wild plains of Africa, including the African wild dog, and those sprinting cheetahs.

Asia comes to life with creatures such as the Amur tiger, and it's these kind of species that are a great way for kids to learn about animal preservation and conservation too.

Why not say hi to the dwarf mongoose, or watch the Emerald tree boa in action?

Oregon Zoo isn't just animal watching either. There are fun special events across the year, and daily animal activities too! You can learn so much more about the animals as you see the elephant keeper talk about those huge creatures, or watch the river otter activities. There are even feeding sessions too!

Choo Choo - don't miss a fun ride on the zoo train either!

It's animal-tastic fun in Oregon on your next family day out, where it's a chance for you to just get....WILD!
