At Denver Zoo, our love for the animals under our care drives everything we do. Less than 10% of zoos in the U.S. meet the exacting accreditation standards of the Association of Zoos and Aquariums (AZA)—and, as members of this exclusive group, we’re proud to be setting the gold standard for wild animal care and wellness in this country. Our ongoing mission: to enhance lives by maximizing daily choice, challenge and control for our animal family.
From the tiniest gecko to the most robust rhino, our 3,500 animals are our most precious resource. Your involvement ensures that the dedicated experts on our Animal Care team have the support they need to provide the best care in the industry, every single day—and that we continue to innovate and evolve with each passing year. Read on to learn some of the many ways you make this possible when you support Animal Care at Denver Zoo.
