The Zoo is the largest family attraction in central Arkansas and boasts more than 300,000 annual visitors, most from outside the Little Rock area. It is a true tourist destination making it an economic engine for our area as well as an important place for conservation education and family fun. We rely heavily on the generosity of partners like you to build new exhibits and to make our Zoo an exciting place.
