Mission Statement

The mission of the Potter Park Zoological Society is to share our knowledge and love of the wild, by striving to teach each visitor to Potter Park Zoo and each participant in Zoo Society programs to take an educated delight in the ways of nature. Our hope is to inspire these individuals, young and old, to commit to the care of our creatures and to the preservation of their habitats and ours.


The Zoo encompasses over 20 acres and features more than 500 individual animals representing approximately 160 different species. As an accredited member of the Association of Zoos and Aquariums (AZA) and participant in its Species Survival Plan (SSP) programs, we are committed to the preservation of endangered animals and are actively developing strategies that will help protect species and preserve their wild habitats. Through education, conservation, research and recreation, Potter Park Zoo provides a wonderfully wild experience for students and families.

Interactions with kids and other patrons is a constant; animal interactions are limited to the falconer's and teen programs unfortunately.
