“The greatest zoo in America”

In 1916 Dr. Harry Wegeforth heard the roar of a lion left over from a World’s Fair in San Diego. At that moment, the prominent physician decided a zoo was needed in San Diego. Now world-famous, the San Diego Zoo is still innovating with groundbreaking new exhibits for more than 3,700 animals, while entertaining millions of visitors. From Australian koalas to Arctic polar bears, the San Diego Zoo celebrates more than 90 years of animal adventure. Open 365 days a year, the San Diego Zoo welcomes San Diego families as well as visitors from around the world.  The 100-acre (40-hectare) Zoo is home to over 3,700 rare and endangered animals representing more than 668 species and subspecies, and a prominent botanical collection with more than 700,000 exotic plants. It is located just north of downtown San Diego in Balboa Park. The San Diego Zoo Safari Park is an expansive wildlife sanctuary that is home to more than 2,600 animals representing more than 340 species. Its renowned botanical collection represents 3,500 species and 1.5 million specimens. Over half of the Park’s 1,800 acres (730 hectares) have been set aside as protected native species habitat. It is located 35 miles (56 kilometers) north of downtown San Diego in the San Pasqual Valley near Escondido, California.
