Woodland Park Zoo

Woodland Park Zoo:
Award-winning Zoo, Seattle

Over 300 animal species…over 300 ways to see the world! Discover over 1,000 animals in this lush 92-acre oasis located just minutes from downtown Seattle.

Woodland Park Zoo is hailed as one of the finest zoos in the world for its award-winning naturalistic exhibits. Explore the African Savanna, Australasia, Northern Trail, Tropical Asia, Temperate Forest, Jaguar Cove, Family Farm, Humboldt penguins, and the new Banyan Wilds.

Banyan Wilds—new May 2015

In the all new heart of the zoo, Malayan tigers and sloth bears inhabit the state-of-the-art Banyan Wilds exhibit. Get closer to these animals than ever before! Banyan Wilds explores the diversity of Asia’s tropical forests and the crossroads we face as communities learn to coexist with wildlife. Discover how our actions can make a difference all the way across the globe.

Fewer than 350 Malayan tigers survive in the wild, but there is hope. If we can protect their habitat and keep them out of the hands of poachers, tiger populations can rebound. Woodland Park Zoo and Panthera work with on-the-ground partners in Malaysia to protect tigers and their forest homes. Will you join us and show your stripes for tiger conservation?

A Wildlife Viewing Adventure Around the World

Go nose-to-nose with a jaguar in a tropical rain forest. Observe a family of gorillas foraging for food. Come eye-to-eye with orangutans living atop trees in an open forest canopy. Safari to Africa for sweeping views of giraffes, hippos and gazelle. Trek to the North for underwater views of grizzly bears and otters.

Encounter waddling penguins that aren’t from a land of ice, but from a desert by the sea at the Humboldt penguin exhibit. Meet a family of squealing Asian small-clawed otters as they take care of pups, hunt for fish, groom, and tumble over each other in a marsh or on the beach. Be delighted by lion cubs playing with their parents. Marvel at the size of the Tapir and the bright colors of the poison dart frogs.
