Our Ongoing Adventure

As one of Colorado’s most vital cultural cornerstones, Denver Zoo is dedicated to providing the communities we serve with an intimate, inspiring and informative first-hand encounter with the wonders of nature. But, while we proudly provide families with an accessible and inviting place to connect with wildlife—and one another—we’re so much more than that, too. 

Our 80-acre campus is an enchanting urban field station, where 2,500+ wonderful animals serve as ambassadors for their wild counterparts all over the world. Our award-winning education and outreach teams spark curiosity for learners of all ages throughout metropolitan Denver. In addition, our global Field Conservation and Emergency Wildlife Response teams have worked tirelessly for more than two decades to protect species threatened by human encroachment, habitat loss and catastrophic events. 

As a non-profit organization, we rely on your support through memberships, visits and donations to instigate action on behalf of our endangered Earth, first by igniting AWE in our visitors. That’s why we’re more devoted than ever to our living our mission—Inspiring Communities to Save Wildlife for Future Generations—each and every day. The survival we ensure may be our own.
