The Sacramento Zoo is proud to announce that in 2014 it provided over $100,000 to support more than two dozen conservation organizations locally and around the world. In 2015 the Zoo is increasing its commitment to conservation. Every time a guest has fun riding the train, carousel, participating in a giraffe encounter or experiencing the Serengeti Cyclone, a quarter will be added to the conservation fund. Read all the details on the Zoo Blog, linked below.

Just over a year ago Castro the Sumatran Tiger was diagnosed with lymphoma, a type of cancer. He has received chemotherapy treatment and undergone surgery for kidney stones over the past year. Although his cancer is most likely not curable he is healthier than he was a year ago when he was first diagnosed and has even gain over 40 pounds!

This is a small but well-maintained zoo with a lot more animals than you'd image in such a petite space. There aren't any "big" animals like rhinos and elephants, but you don't miss those as you walk through this zoo; there are so many other animals to look at. I also like that this zoo keeps their social media (Facebook, etc.) up to date so you always know what's going on there: when the animals have babies, when the free days are at the zoo, when special events and celebrations are taking place... It's a very "homey", friendly and inviting zoo. I like, too, that its small size allows me to walk through the entire zoo in just a few hours.

I volunteer at the Sacramento Zoo, so I am a little biased. To those calling this a small zoo, I suppose it is small compared to the San Diego Zoo, but compared to Micki Grove Zoo in Lodi where I am from...it's HUGE. I love the exhibits at the Sac Zoo. They are spacious and similar to the animals natural environments. For being a smaller zoo, I think their habitats are well built. They keep their animals stimulated which is great and they are very clean. They clean the exhibits daily and they are always getting fresh produce to feed the animals. They take care of the animals well and that's the part that I really like. I also think it is unique that they have the onsite vet facility. They are huge on safety and education; that is great as well. I agree that their prices are a bit steep, but that is with every zoo. Overall, I think it is a great zoo and I feel honored to be able to volunteer there.

It's okay. Super small. Overpriced for the size. It took less than 2 hours to see everything with my 19 month old. And, we even stopped and played at the new playground.

I love taking my little nieces to the zoo! They love the "pink birdies" and the "polka dot giraffe." While the kiddos are checking out the animals, I enjoy the outdoors and the friendly docents who are very informative and helpful. Cheers to the Sacramento Zoo.

My gosh people its a zoo I can't believe all the bad reviews here. I guess that's the world we live in now days. Everyone wants the best for nothing. It's a great zoo for a small city like Sacramento. We take our kids to the zoo all the time and they love it. Just go and have fun and stop being so negative folks.

I'm bothered by the negative reviews about the zoo being small. That's what makes it so special. It's cozy and personal. It's perfect that it doesn't take all day to get through. Loved feeding giraffes.
