The 64-acre Oregon Zoo is located in Portland, a city and surrounding metropolitan area of 2.26 million people. Annual attendance is more than 1.5 million, making the zoo the top paid attraction in the Pacific Northwest.
The nonprofit Oregon Zoo Foundation enhances community involvement with the zoo through member-based and individual giving support. Each year it contributes approximatley $5 million to help fund the zoo's critical work in conservation, education and animal welfare.
With ongoing renovations to existing facilities and with every new exhibit or system, the zoo aims to be a model of sustainable conservation of natural resources.
