New @ The Zoo
Meet The Animals
We're renovating the Desert habitat in Natural Encounters; that area of this building, including mole rats and the marine aquarium, are temporarily closed off.
The art exhibit will include wildlife art and photography from around the world including original watercolors and limited edition giclées. Featured works will chronicle photographer Paul Swen’s expeditions around the globe to some of the most remote locations in order to protect critically endangered wildlife and their environments. In addition, a selection of artworks from the annual exhibit of the prestigious international artist group, Artists for Conservation, will also be on exhibit.
All proceeds to benefit conservation efforts championed by the Houston Zoo.
The elephant is one of Africa’s most iconic species. It is in peril due to illegal poaching, habitat loss and conflict with local human communities. We need your help today to turn the tide and protect wildlife and communities in Africa.
