Celebrate Nature—at the Zoo and Virtually!
At the North Carolina Zoo, we celebrate nature. Being the world’s largest natural habitat zoo means the animals here have plenty of room to roam. Our dedicated team of experts provide exceptional, compassionate care to the more than 1,800 animals that call our Park home. We also lead efforts locally and globally to protect wildlife and wild places because we believe nature’s diversity is critical for our collective future. During the COVID-19 pandemic, the Zoo is offering a wide variety of virtual programs so you can stay connected and learn about nature. The North Carolina Zoo welcomes everyone to join in our mission to protect nature’s diversity.
