Every day #96Elephants are killed in Africa for ivory—a shocking statistic. More shocking? The U.S. is the second biggest market for ivory in the world. Help us get 960 pledges to show state leaders we want a moratorium on ivory sales in Washington. Join the herd and add your name.
96 Elephants are killed for the ivory trade every day. Join the herd and take action to save elephants

At 40 years old, the complex and at times controversial Endangered Species Act has protected many wildlife species from extinction. Now, the future of two native NW species hangs in the balance. Currently, gray wolves are being considered for delisting from protections, while Oregon spotted frogs are being considered for listing. There’s a lot at stake for these species, for ourselves, and for our shared environments. Let’s take a closer look at the issues.

So excited to announce that lion Adia gave birth to four cubs last night! These are the first lion cubs born at the zoo in 20 years. We are roaring with pride! See video and photos from their behind-the-scenes maternity den at the link.

Welcome the newest zoo babies: four Asian small-clawed otter pups born January 20! The pups—three females and one male—are behind the scenes with mom and dad for now. Their four older brothers also help out with raising them, which means viewing is a bit irregular on exhibit right now with the family sticking close together behind the scenes. Get the first look at the pups in this video.

A porcupine’s front teeth continue to grow throughout its life. That’s helpful since it spends its days constantly gnawing on hard substances, wearing down its teeth. Mmmm, tree bark.

A very fun and relaxing zoo. Great exhibits and you can get really close to the animals. The food isn't very good, but the rest of the park deserves 5 stars alone.

The Woodland Park Zoo was always a highlight on our trip down to Seattle but I always felt sad watching the elephants and began avoiding the exhibit. After learning of Watoto's death and the refusal of the park to act in the best interest of Chai and Bamboo, I knew that I could never support this park again. Our trips to Seattle are always one day shorter and with the support of our daughter, we never have and never plan to return to the park. This is not an institution that cares for animals but profits from them.

This is very nice zoo. Not sure why others complained about it. It was well thought out and our kids absolutely loved it. The lattes along the way are a bit pricy but its to be expected I guess

Prior to a recent trip, we'd only been up here once and it was for a wedding so there was minimal looking at monkeys. This time, with most of the family in tow comma we had a wonderful time and learned exactly what Woodland Park Zoo is all about! As we were walking in I found myself wondering what it must be like to actually live in urban Seattle and have a zoo a block or two away from your house. I'm sure there's times when loud animals can be heard on a soft quiet spring evening. Either way, when we came in on a nice spring day the whole place was lovely. Parking is at a premium here, and while they don't charge a ton for it, if you can find parking nearby it seems like that is probably the better option. We got there about a half hour after they opened and most of the lots were full by that point. Luckily, we found some parking across the street. Tickets for something like $15 or $20 per person, but if you order online there are a few different options which will get you discounts. I think we used our Triple A card and it got us like 20% off. My wife would tell you it was like we made $15 that day! We were all really surprised with how big this zoo was. They have been sectioned off into different regions where animals would be found. It's big enough that you could probably spend 3 days here and not actually see everything, but in the four hours we had we managed to see a good amount. The primate house was fun and something that all the kids liked. The big animals were plentiful - the favorites were the zebras, elephant, ostriches and bears. We didn't make it to the area where they had otters, but I'm sure that would have been nice - they're like the hipsters of the sea! An interesting and unexpected find was the food court. It was surprisingly excellent and a really nice place to stop during the middle of our little Adventure. Given we only saw about a third of this place while there, we're excited to explore more in the future. Well worth your time to check out.

Lets start with the ticket prices - probably some of the most reasonable that you'll come across. $19.95 for adults and $12.25 for kids older than 2 (0-2 are free). If you have AAA, you can get 20% off if you buy them AHEAD OF TIME online (you don't have to print them out - you can show the tickets on your phone). Parking at the zoo is $6/car, which is very reasonable - or you can park on the street like we did. We were only 2 blocks away, which was quite convenient! We didn't realize you can bring in your own food/drinks and have a picnic lunch. They have a ton of great space with picnic tables for you to use (I've attached a picture of one). If you don't bring you own, they have several cafeteria options. We were extremely impressed with the quality of the food for the price! Drinks were pricey ($3.25 for 20oz diet coke,), but the lunch entrees' were very reasonably priced! The pesto chicken panini was around $8, a chicken caesar salad was about $9 (see pictures). The food was really good and we wouldn't hesitate to recommend it! I recognize that this zoo is not mammoth like the san diego zoo, but it is a great size for younger kids! The exhibits are well done and they have great vantage points for many of the animals. During out trip, we enjoyed the orangutans, bears, and penguins the most! The giraffes were also very cool! If you get the chance, check this place out! It's a great attraction and it's good to get your kids outdoors!

This isn't the San Diego Zoo but its still great. Everything is clean and well maintained. The animals seem well cared for and happy. Admission and parking are both reasonable. Its not too crowded even in the summer!
