ENVISIONING THE FUTURE
The El Paso Zoological Society and the El Paso Zoo embrace a strong partnership in building a premier recreational destination in our City. We work closely to develop meaningful programs and engaging exhibits that emphasize conservation and an appreciation for wildlife and healthy ecosystems.
The El Paso Zoo creates memories, reinforces values, and ignites passion for nature and life that elevate the imagination, bringing the world to west Texas and allowing over 350,000 visitors per year to experience animals from around the globe. The Zoo reinforces students’ classroom lessons, provides families with a venue for exploration and wonder, and grows an understanding of our ability to conserve locally for global impact.
Supporting the El Paso Zoo through the Zoological Society strengthens our community’s number-one attraction and enriches the essence of this great city.
