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.

They have an excellent array of animals of all kinds, including a large penguin exhibit which they have a zookeeper talk to the crowd about around 1:30 pm of certain days, which was quite entertaining and informative. The Zoo also has multiple areas where various bird species are free-roaming where attendees walk. Many areas such as the Otter exhibit have low clear walls where you can see under the water and easily take photos above the barrier. When we visited one of the tigers, a large male, was quite happy to roll around on his back right in front of one of the viewing areas, though the Jaguars were busy pacing, and the lion was sleeping in a remote corner. The butterfly enclosure was more of a concentration camp for butterflies, a bit depressing, but the rest of the Zoo was quite nice, and most of the animals seemed perfectly content.

This zoo can actually make you nervous as you're walking through it because it was designed so that in some parts you feel like you're in the wild with the animals. Sometimes zoos are boring, but this one is really enjoyable, even when you're just walking between exhibits. The exhibits themselves are big and you don't feel like you're looking at animals in a box, but rather it's almost like a wild animal park. There are also areas where you can get inside with the animals, like the bird exhibit, butterflys and a couple others. One of the best attractions in Seattle.

Nice. Buy an annual membership for one person in the family, and get half priced tickets for two others. Food court order lines can be too long. Bring your own food. Wish they were open till 7pm in summer, atleast on weekends. Great family fun place. Car parking is not free for members however, which should be. But it's very cheap through.

Beautiful park in general. Right downtown Seattle. Landscaping is amazing. Animal exhibits are designed so you can see animals up close. One of the best zoos in the country (IMO).

This zoo is a nice size, with your staple animals and a northern animals section I haven't seen at other zoos. At peak times, the crowds of young children can get frustrating in getting through the aviaries' double doors, and you can easily miss one of the indoor buildings (tree kangaroos!), but the exhibits generally seem reasonably sized and outfitted. The Thai jungle exhibit is now fairly empty (I believe they took out the elephants), and the African Safari primarily consists of long-distance viewing. The named membership allows for unlimited visits for the year and half off admission for up to two guests every time. In the winter season, many of the animals are off exhibit, but the admission price is half off as well. I believe half priced admission is also available on certain rainy days. With a decent raincoat, this is an activity which is still doable on a drizzly day (though maybe not with small children). Don't miss: Baby gorilla, penguins, river otters

This zoo is not the biggest or most elaborate but it is clean and well maintained. You can get close to the animals here, which is great for photos. We came later in the day, but apparently it is better to come early. My wife fed the penguins. It is like $5 but she enjoyed it.

I love zoos. I think Seattle's Woodland Park Zoo is one of the better ones I've been to. Most of the animals are in spaces that resemble their native homes. There are many amenities here, including the Rain Forest Cafe, a restored 100 year old carousel in an enclosed building that runs rain or shine (important in Seattle.)

Give yourself a lot of time, where shoes, sunscreen and be ready for lots of walking. By the end of the day I was sort of letting my child visit the area we were at while I sat and just rested and waited for him to return. It's a very interesting zoo to visit with a nice variety of animals/creatures to see. Another side-challenge for the kids, which I let my son do, is to let them plan out a path to follow and just go with it. The course to follow to see everything sort of overlaps as you walk though the zoo, but it's not a big deal. Hence the long day of walking. I still liked it and even more so was glad my son enjoyed it completely.
