Now more than 125 years removed from its historical origins, Zoo Atlanta has evolved from a quaint picnic stop where people visited wild animals to a conservation organization seeking to engage the public in the lives of its animal ambassadors and the preservation of their counterparts in the wild. The long journey from Victorian curiosity to national leader has not been without its challenges, but the mission, animals, programs and people of Zoo Atlanta will ensure that history will continue to be made.
They envision a world where wildlife and humans flourish together.
They save wildlife and their habitats through conservation, research, education and engaging experiences. Their efforts connect people to animals and inspire conservation action.
