WHERE APPRECIATION AND CONSERVATION GO HAND IN HAND

The Milwaukee County Zoo is a serene home to more than 2,275 mammals, birds, fish, amphibians and reptiles with more than 330 species represented. Enjoy a day out with the family visiting the Primate Building, the Monkey Island and the Winter Quarters, the Aquarium/Reptile, and Australian Buildings.

Our objective is to promote an appreciation for all animals and to support conservation of their diverse habitats. We’ve grown significantly since our 1892 inception, but we maintain a strong commitment to our vision and mission.

Our Vision:

Contributing to world wide animal management, conservation and research efforts
Fostering sound physical, psychological and social development for the animal groups in our care
Sharing our knowledge with the intent to reinforce the human-animal-earth bond
Improving the quality of our professional development, administration and operating environment
