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.

Just when you thought you couldn't possibly love penguins any more than you already do, they go and do something like this. (Photo: Rebecca Swee/WPZ)

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.

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

very sad to hear how this zoo handled the elephant tragedy A zoo is only as good as the humane decisions that affect it's animals welfare If you can't act in the animals best interest , then be a park . I cannot understand how anyone can view a animal enclosed as a exhibit It is just sad .

So far I have only experienced it at night, during the "Wild Lights" event in the middle of winter. It was interesting, but definitely children-oriented. Will definitely come back in daytime, on a warmer day, to check it out.

The staff was very nice, the zoo it self was clean and the other people looking around the the zoo were very courteous which was a well received surprise. The signs and all the posters are also very educational and fun this is what makes a great zoo a great place, its fun and educational. But sadly quite a few of the animals looked very sad most of the monkeys and gorillas, and even the rabbits. But you can tell that the zoo does try its best to keep the animals happy which is good.

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!

A really great zoo. Its pretty big but still walkable. Lots of different animals, but my kids were sad that the elephants were not there. Prices were reasonable.

We loved the lemurs and the red pandas. The birds were nice to look at. We went in the winter (December 20th) and many of the animals are curled up in their burrows due to the cold. Though winter is not the ideal time to visit the zoo, we had a nice time!

My children love this zoo. It is the perfect size for young children and easy to get around. They have a great selection of animals too.
