New @ The Zoo
Meet The Animals
Grizzly bears are off exhibit this week, through April 20.
The Water Play Park is now open for the season! It is open daily when the ambient temperature is above 70 degrees.
Gorillas are coming back to the Zoo in 2015. Please pardon our mess in the African Forest as we prepare for their arrival.
Join us for World Oceans Day as we celebrate our waters and the marine life that call it home! Come out for special readings of the Dr. Seuss classic “One Fish, Two Fish, Red Fish, Blue Fish,” kid-friendly activities, and more.
Don’t miss our special, World Oceans Day Meet the Keeper Talks:
Sea Lion Show – 11:30 a.m.
Otter Talk – 1:30 p.m. – Natural Encounters Building
Pelican Feeding & Meet the Keeper Talk – 3:15 p.m. – Children’s Zoo
This event is included with your Zoo admission and is FREE for Zoo members.
Also, don’t miss out on your chance to sign-up for our beach clean-up taking place on Saturday, June 29. Join the Houston Zoo and help make a difference for marine life! Just look for the sign-up booth in the front plaza.
“Together we have the power to protect the ocean.”
