The Jackson Zoo will be celebrating it’s Centennial this year! Currently we care for more than 365 animals representing over 200 species from exotic locales all over the globe, working with other accredited zoos and wildlife organizations to protect them for generations to come. Since 1919, the Jackson Zoo has been helping families spend quality time together, creating lifelong memories, and bringing the community together in the outdoors to appreciate wildlife and the environment we all share.

As a 501c3 non-profit, we depend on daily admissions, memberships, sponsors, and donors in our efforts to educate all ages and help them engage with our staff and animals.

Rediscover YOUR Jackson Zoo as we enter into another one hundred years of connecting people and wildlife!
