About Zoo New York
Before the arrival of European settlers, white-tailed deer and elk roamed the land now known as New York, while lynx lurked in dense forests and eagles soared through the sky. Though that landscape and its inhabitants have changed, many of these animals can still be found congregated in one place: Zoo New York.
Encompassing 32 acres, the zoo hosts a menagerie of species indigenous to the Empire State. Some, like bobcats and black bears, live in abundance in the wild; others, like the Canada lynx, have earned an endangered or threatened status, making conservation efforts essential for their continued survival.
Beyond the ecosystems built around these animals, wildflowers skirt the manmade Olmsted Pond, and fluttering specimens fill the Butterfly House, flitting from flower to flower.
