North Carolina Zoo

Celebrate Nature—at the Zoo and Virtually!

At the North Carolina Zoo, we celebrate nature. Being the world’s largest natural habitat zoo means the animals here have plenty of room to roam. Our dedicated team of experts provide exceptional, compassionate care to the more than 1,700 animals that call our Park home.

We also lead efforts locally and globally to protect wildlife and wild places because we believe nature’s diversity is critical for our collective future. Be sure to check out our wide variety of virtual programs so you can stay connected and learn about nature. By planning a fun day trip to the zoo, you get to support our efforts of protecting endangered species and habitats. Our park welcomes everyone to join in our mission to protect nature’s diversity.
