Construction Updates

Over the years, you’ve watched your Houston Zoo undergo enormous changes and growth. We completed the most dramatic transformation in our history with our brand-new exhibit, Galápagos Islands, which opened in April 2023.

We are redefining what a zoo can be with beautiful and immersive habitats, compelling guest experiences, and an unyielding commitment to saving wildlife.

To create these new spaces, our construction projects may temporarily shift pathways, close buildings and move some animals to new habitats. During this process, the Zoo is working diligently to minimize impacts, while continuing to maintain the best experience possible for both guests and our animals.
