Description

The Lee Richardson Zoo is often referred to as an oasis on the plains. Occupying almost half of the 110-acre Finnup Park, the zoo is a favorite gathering spot for nearly a quarter million visitors each year.

The population of animals on display at the zoo provides an example of wildlife found throughout the world. Over 145 species are represented within our facility, ranging from the elusive snow leopard to the flashy and fancy flamingo.

Mission

The mission of the zoo is to instill appreciation and encourage stewardship of the Earth's natural treasures through the exhibition, conservation and interpretation of wildlife.
