The North Carolina Zoo is temporarily suspending operations
effective March 17 until further notice. More information.
The North Carolina Zoo hosts events from April to December that are designed to be enjoyed by guests of all ages.
Join us for a wild evening of stories from the people that take care of the North Carolina Zoo’s most exotic animals...Jb Minter, the North Carolina Zoo’s Director of Animal Health, leads a four-part series of conversations with other Zoo staff and gives a peek into the sometimes bizarre world of everyday, exotic animal care.
The American Association of Zookeepers (AAZK) invites you to come run for the animals at the North Carolina Zoo! Join zookeepers, friends and family for a good cause. Proceeds go to conservation efforts both local and globally as well as zookeeper professional development!
More information coming soon!
