The National Zoological Park in Washington, DC stands on a 163-acre property. It was established in 1889 by an Act of Congress in order to advance science and to promote the instruction and recreation of the people. It has actually become a world leader in exhibition, zoological research, conservation, and education.

Today, it has become a wonderful urban park that offers family fun, adventure, and excitement. It enables visitors to be educated about its animals while enjoying nature.

The zoo houses about 2,800 animals and 435 different species that comprise the animal collection of the zoo. One-fifth of the species here are already endangered or threatened. Most of these are on display.
