The Houston Zoo is temporarily closed. Tickets will go back on sale when the Zoo opens on April 4.

Bringing the Zoo to You

Each weekday, we’re hosting an 11:00 a.m. CST Facebook Live to bring the Zoo to YOU! We will be sharing daily updates of what our furred, flippered, and feathered friends are up to and how our zookeepers are caring for them while we are closed. Follow along and check out the fun at-home-learning activities below!
