New Yorkers are lucky to have the world’s largest urban zoo right in their city. With 265 acres of wildlife habitats to see, the Bronx Zoo is the ultimate escape in the Big Apple that let’s you choose your own adventure every time you visit! More than 600 species from around the globe call the Bronx Zoo home — from the Congo Gorilla Forest to the Madagascar exhibit, the zoo is the perfect place to see and learn about animals.
Plus, you can feel good about visiting the Bronx Zoo — the Wildlife Conservation Society is dedicated to greening its own backyard with measures to combat climate change at its Bronx Zoo headquarters and throughout its New York City Zoos and Aquarium. Through energy-efficient exhibits and office buildings, recycling programs, and other eco-friendly technologies, the WCS strives to set an example for other organizations and individuals in New York City to lighten our output.
