In an effort to connect the community with animals, the Houston Zoo works to provide engaging animal experiences for millions of guests each year. Their commitment to preserve animal wildlife has resulted in providing outstanding care for the thousands of animals throughout the zoo. They also aim to inspire others to take action and protect wildlife through public and private events and entertainment. Check out some of the main attractions:
- McNair Asian Elephant Habitat: The newest expansion at the Houston Zoo, this habitat serves as home to nine elephants, including baby Joy—while walking across the boardwalk, visitors can watch as these majestic creatures splash in their 160,000-gallon pool.
- Gorillas at the Houston Zoo: Their power is legendary. Their movements—majestic. Their presence—simply awesome. Visitors experience everything that makes gorillas so wonderful, up close and incredible.
- John P. McGovern Children’s Zoo: A river otter plays underwater, the sounds of flapping wings echo in a realistic bat cave, and goats bleat for attention in the Petting Zoo—kids experience all this at the John P. McGovern Children’s Zoo, where guests can also find the Bug House, home to a variety of fascinating insects.
