Our programs

What are the organization's current programs, how do they measure success, and who do the programs serve?

Animals/Habitats

Our animals/habitats programs provide educational and recreational programming intended to provide conservation and environmental education. We also provide habitats that are appropriate for our zoo residents and are compliant with American Zoological Association standards. Our programs include housing many species that are endangered world-wide.

Population(s) Served

Our conservation programs are wide-ranging, including collaborations with local, state, national and international entities. As part of our conservation program we are completing work on the San Antonio Zoo Center for Conservation and Research, enabling the zoo to continue to support research on, and habitats for, endangered species from around the world.

Population(s) Served

Our educational programs are designed to inform and educate our visitors regarding environmental issues, conservation issues, and to increase awareness of environmentally responsible behavior. Our
programs are interactive when possible and facilitated by trained zoo personnel who bring a depth and breadth of knowledge to the zoo that is invaluable in educating our visitors regarding the animals they are seeing in their natural habitats. As much as possible we align those educational programs to what the children are learning in school, in order to give real-life meaning to abstract concepts learned in the classroom. Our newest educational venture is the renovation of our new Will Smith Zoo School facility. While we have had a nature-based pre-school for 13 years, we now have the ability to increase our enrollment from 50 students maximum to a maximum of 220-continuing to focus on our conservation message.
