The Brandywine Zoo's Education Programs enhance and enrich peoples' understanding and respect of the complex relationships among all living things AND inspire wildlife conservation.
The Brandywine Zoo is located in beautiful Brandywine Park in Wilmington, DE. Delaware's only zoo was built in 1905. The Brandywine Zoo is home to a variety of species of mammals, birds, reptiles, and amphibians from North and South America and temperate Asia. Some of the most popular exhibits are the red pandas, playful river otters, Andean condors, bobcats, sandhill crane, and MORE! Learn about wild and exotic animals right in your community, then take what you learn and teach others about wildlife and wildlife conservation!
The purpose of the Brandywine Zoo is to stimulate knowledge, awareness, and appreciation of the biological and physical world and to promote an understanding of our relationship to the environment. This is accomplished by providing a variety of living interpretive exhibits and programs that encourage a commitment to the protection and conservation of our natural world and its delicately balanced components.
