Seattle's Woodland Park Zoo is  home to over 1,100 animals representing 300 animal species. 

Connect with nature as you discover the world of gorillas, grizzlies, lions, giraffes and more. Meet curious and clever ambassador animals at outdoor theater programs--a hornbill, porcupine, raccoon, miniature pot-bellied pigs and more. See penguins "fly" under water along a stunning desert coast. Enjoy squealing otters. Go eye-to-eye with orangutans in an open forest canopy. Experience free-flying butterflies in a seasonal garden. Encounter tigers and learn how to save these big cats. See...and save wildlife!

The zoo's 92 acres are divided into bioclimatic zones, featuring different natural habitats ranging from humid tropical rain forests and coastal deserts to temperate rain forests like those of the Pacific Northwest. Noted for its cutting edge exhibits and expansive horticultural collection, the award-winning zoo is hailed as one of the finest in the world.

Feed a penguin, talk to a zoo keeper, ride the historical carousel--there's so much to do at the Woodland Park Zoo!
