Learn more about our fascinating animals through family-friendly activities at stations across the Zoo and a shark station at our affiliated Children’s Aquarium at Fair Park. Discover how the Dallas Zoo is helping save elephants, cheetahs, penguins, and gorillas in Africa, as well as the monarch butterfly right here at home. Explore green actions we can all take together on behalf of endangered species and consider a pledge to help us reach our weekend goal of 1,000 new pledges for conservation action — imagine the difference we’ll make!

The extinction crisis is real and the threats to our animals are great. Our wild and beautiful world needs our attention like never before. Working together, we can meet the challenges head-on.
