Mission Statement

A private, nonprofit organization, the Philadelphia Zoo is dedicated to its mission of conservation, science education and recreation. As America's first zoo, the Philadelphia Zoo was chartered in 1859 under the Zoological Society of Philadelphia. The Philadelphia Zoo's core purpose is to advance discovery, understanding and stewardship of the natural world through compelling exhibition and interpretation of living animals and plants.


The Philadelphia Zoo is America's first zoo and one of the region's foremost conservation organizations. The 42-acre Victorian garden is home to more than 1,600 animals, including highly endangered Amur tigers and rare sifaka lemurs. The Zoo promotes conservation efforts to protect endangered species around the world. The Zoo is also a major educational and recreational attraction, welcoming more than one million visitors last year. For more information or tickets, please log on to www.philadelphiazoo.org.
