The Oregon Zoo is a rich ecosystem of conservation, animal care and enrichment, and education.

Get to know the stories, facts and habits of your neighbors on planet earth. Visit the Oregon Zoo either by walking through the zoo’s front entrance into 64 acres of discoveries, or by navigating to pages about any of the zoo’s animals and conservation programs.

Areas and exhibits

The zoo is arranged in five areas that range across different continents and ecosystems: Great Northwest, Elephant Lands, Africa, Primate Forest and Discovery Zone. Within each zone you’ll find animals and habitats such as Africa Savanna or Polar Passage that recreate the habitats of specific animals. Spend a day in one area or circle the planet on your visit to the Oregon Zoo.


Each species at the zoo has its own web page of facts, figures and background information. Discover more about favorite animals before a trip to the zoo, use these pages for school reports or browse your way randomly through web pages full of “I didn’t know that!” facts.
