On this national day of reflection, we pause to give thanks for so very much:
Our residents. “Until one has loved an animal, a part of one’s soul remains unawakened,” said poet Anatole France.
There aren’t many babies in the animal kingdom who pop out looking this striking. Born sporting a fiery chestnut coat with thin white lines and adorably massive ears, eastern bongos’ natural beauty is one of the main reasons behind their decline in the wild.
Many people are aware of the plight of better-known exotic animals around the world, like tigers, chimps, and elephants. But what about the animals in our own back yard who are suffering from both population and habitat loss?
As you may know, we’re awaiting approval of a permit to relocate 18 elephants who face certain death in Swaziland. We’re joining two other accredited U.S. zoos to give them the newest, most innovative homes for elephants in human care.
Forget the flannel, cable-knit sweaters, and scarves – no one knows fall style better than the animal kingdom. We’re laying down some fall fashion with 10 animals who make this season look better than ever.
For the first time in the Dallas Zoo’s long history (almost 130 years!), we have welcomed western grey kangaroos.
Tigers, orangutans, and many other animals are losing their rainforest homes so we can eat food and use products that contain a special ingredient that grows in their habitats – palm oil.
Our attendance record was shattered for the sixth straight fiscal year, with 1,028,516 guests! Exceeding one million visitors is a first in our 127 years. We couldn’t have done it without your undying loyalty, support and love for Texas’s oldest and largest zoo.
A day spent at the zoo is a privilege, time well-spent in the presence of majestic, threatened and endangered animals who deserve our respect, compassion and conservation.
When nearly 18-year-old mandrill Milo, the beloved father to Obi, passed away suddenly from a form of lymphatic cancer in June 2014, Dallas Zoo staff were at a loss.
