The Saint Louis Zoo is the proud home to over 14,000 animals, representing nearly 500 species. Since its opening in 1875, the Zoo has been widely recognized as a leader in animal care and management, wildlife conservation research and education.

An estimated 3 million visitors are expected to visit the Saint Louis Zoo in a single year, which is one of the few free zoos in the nation. It’s one of the most visited attractions in all of Saint Louis.

The Zoo has consistently been known for it’s beautiful naturalistic exhibits, diverse collection of animals, and the fact that it is located in an urban area. It has innovative approaches to animal management, research and education.

The Saint Louis Zoo Wild Care Institute focuses on wildlife management and recovery, and support of the human populations that coexist with wildlife, which can be found in several countries, including three in Missouri.

Zoos are a place where families can have a fun and memorable day together, every time they visit. Many zoos offer a variety of exhibits, entertainment, and educational opportunities so that parents don’t tire of visiting. They also provide an excellent opportunity for children to learn about animals and the environment in a safe environment.

Today’s families are more conscious about the importance of teaching their children about the natural world and respecting all living creatures in it. They are also much more aware of the importance of exploring the outdoors, spending time outside, and getting their hands dirty while they learn.

The most compelling reason to visit the Saint Louis Zoo is to see the animals, and that is what we find when we do visitor research. The chance to spend time outdoors with the family is something that our visitors find compelling.

When people visit zoos and have a first-hand experience with animals, they often make an emotional connection that lasts a lifetime. The research of visitors at zoos has shown that they are inspired to learn more after experiencing the wonderment of animals and also act differently to protect them in their natural habitats.
