Los Angeles Zoo in Los Angeles, California

The Los Angeles Zoo is located in the heart of the nation’s second-largest city. Each year 1.3 million visitors pass through the gates to view a collection of 1,200 animals from around the world. When the Los Angeles Zoo opened in November 1966, 80,000 Angelenos attended the grand opening. Several of the animals that were in the Zoo on opening day have lived long lived here including elephant Gita, alligator Methuselah, and Indian rhino Herman. The LA Zoo was the first major zoo in the United States to bar visitors from feeding the animals.

Today the Zoo is optimistic about new exhibits that will provide better living conditions for the varied and magnificent animals that live here, and provide a more interesting experience for visitors. The Zoo continues to participate in conservation programs to preserve native habitats and ensure that animals can continue to live in the wild. All over the Zoo there is a spirit of optimism about the future as we look ahead to being one of the best zoos in the nation, and a zoo that the people of Los Angeles can truly be proud of.
