Description

Open year-round, the Pueblo Zoo is located in City Park in Pueblo, Colorado. Visitors, including those using strollers or wheelchairs, enjoy an easy stroll through beautifully landscaped grounds that lead to Serengeti Safari, North American Grasslands, the Australian Outback, World of Color, and an Asian Adventure. In the Ecocenter, explore a tropical rain forest, discover naked mole rats in their underground world, and watch penguins 'fly' underwater. Islands of Life invites you on a shipwreck journey to habitats around the world. Enjoy northern river otters swimming and frolicking or visit the Pioneer Ranch where kids of all ages can get up close to farm animals.

Home to more than 420 animals of 140 species, the Zoo is managed by the Pueblo Zoological Society and accredited by the American Zoo and Aquarium Association (AZA).

Adopting an animal at the Pueblo Zoo helps the zoo take care of the animal and you get recognition at the Zoo! The Zoo has over 300 animals to take care of! That's a lot of hay, fresh fruits and vegetables, pellets, and meat. Talk about a BIG grocery bill. One way the zoo raises money to help take care of all the animals that live at the zoo is through the 'Adopt A Wild Child' Animal Adoption Project!

Please remember it does take approximately 2 hours to visit the Zoo.

Mission

The mission of the Pueblo Zoological Society is to promote appreciation and understanding of the natural world while providing a quality environment at the Pueblo Zoo for animals and visitors. The non-profit Pueblo Zoological Society manages the city-owned Pueblo Zoo under an agreement with Pueblo City Council.

Educational Programs

Our Education Programs center around live animals and may include slide presentations, biofacts such as pelts and antlers, guided tours of Zoo exhibits, or ideas for self-guided tours. While most are best presented at the Zoo where resources are readily available, several can successfully be brought to the school classroom. Each program is presented by specially trained volunteers, called docents, who interpret life science concepts at the appropriate level for your students.
