Binder Park Zoo Animals

Binder Park Zoo is accredited by the Association of Zoos and Aquariums (AZA) and is a member of the World Association of Zoos and Aquariums (WAZA). We are dedicated to providing excellent care for our animals, a great experience for you, and a better future for all living things.

Binder Park Zoo is home to many Species Survival Plan (SSP) animals. SSPs are coordinated efforts between all AZA-accredited zoos to improve the genetics and survivability of threatened and endangered species.

Visit Binder Park Zoo on any Animal Play Day and witness first hand how our zookeepers keep the animals active and happy. Play Days are a perfect way to see how the animals receive enrichment and to learn more about the animals.

Times and animals are subject to change without notice. Check with the entrance for updates.
