The Houston Zoo provides a fun, unique, and inspirational experience fostering appreciation, knowledge, and care for the natural world.
Essentially a small city encompassing a world of ecosystems and experiences, the Houston Zoo is made up of many moving parts. We have over 4,500 permanent residents (our animals) for whom we provide housing, meals, medical care and, yes, even education! In addition, we have 1.5 million guests each year who come to experience our incredible variety of animals and ecosystems, as well as attend special private and public events and entertainment. Our dedicated staff works around the clock to ensure that the Zoo is always running smoothly for the safety and well being of our residents and guests.
In everything we do we strive to:
Be a zoo for all
Practice exemplary animal care
Deliver an outstanding guest experience
Create a workplace that instills empowerment, respect, and teamwork
Provide superior education and learning opportunities
Promote conservation awareness and action
Apply best business practices and sound financial management
Inspire broad community support
