LA Zoo & Botanical Gardens

The Los Angeles Zoo and Botanical Gardens is home to more than 1,400 mammals, birds, amphibians, and reptiles representing more than 270 different species, of which more than 58 are endangered.


Different demonstrations and activities are available each day. More than 20 species of birds perform in the show, including macaws, condors, vultures, crane, hornbill, hawks, owls, and eagles. Visit the Winnick Family Children’s Zoo to get up close with our goats and sheep in the animal contact area known as Muriel’s Ranch.  Visit the Wasserman Family Thai Pavilion at the Elephants of Asia habitat to discover how we keep towering six-ton pachyderms happy and healthy at this fascinating demonstration presented by expert animal care and education staff.
