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.

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.

Giraffes have the largest eyes of any land mammal. Other animals on the savanna use giraffes as watchtowers—with their height and keen vision, giraffes are often the first to spot predators.

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.

Don't miss the newest addition to the Northern Trail: 1-year-old arctic foxes Lily and August. The two bring loads of energy to the exhibit, not always to the delight of their mountain goat neighbor Wilson!

We gave five stars because while we refuse to attend any future after zoo hours events, we enjoy the zoo during the normal hours. As far as the night event's or the members only events, we tried them all, and we were miserable every time. They close down 2/3 of the zoo and with the extra foot traffic, it is literally elbow to elbow. We attended wildlight event recently and we were a little disappointed with the members 2.00 discount (only Sun-Thur BTW). Some people were shoving through the crowds, and one man was actually smoking in the zoo (GROSS!!!). In the indoor playground, some kids were running wild and it was just too busy for parents to properly watch kids. My son was actually pushed down the stairs by the slide (three feet from me) and while he wasn't injured, my heart stopped. A friends one year old was in the crawler area had her hand stepped on by another parent, and some kids were too old to be in there pushing the younger ones around. The members night had lines that were a joke. We drove an hour and a half to get there with traffic (usually takes 20 minutes), and we were only at the zoo 10 minutes, the only thing to show was wasting gas to get there. Again, 2/3 of the zoo was closed off and we were miserable. While I understand the reasons why the zoo is closed off, and for some the event is fun, it just wasn't for us. Others who don't do well in crowded places should be aware that these events are CROWDED. During the day, we LOVE the zoo. We are members and it is worth every penny. We go at least once a month, but weekly in the nicer weather. My husband doesn't go as often since my son and I go during the week when he works. We plan on renewing our membership for only myself and son. We don't mind paying half the general admission for my husband since he doesn't go as much. The information given by the zoo staff is great! I love that they have people set up to answer questions about the animals. Food is expensive, but there is a lot to pick from in the food court. You can pack a lunch (we do that) and eat it in the picnic areas.

We planned our son's 3rd birthday at the zoo and it was great! We added the face painting and animal encounter (I highly recommend both). The kids and parents had a great time. The catering staff and the event team were great to work with and were there the day of the party to be sure everything went as planned. If you are planning a birthday party for a child I would recommend the zoo!

Do the City Pass to save $ & see rest of Seattle too. Nice variety. Grizzly bears, white wolf and enormous elk exhibition is best part. Hippo & elephants kinda hard to see. No shows in afternoon so go early if want see shows. Plenty of restrooms but kinda smell.

I've been to many zoos across the country and this is one of my favorites! A wide variety of animals from across the world with beautiful habitats. Extremely kid and family friendly and also a great place for an adult day date.

Warning: cuteness overload Really, it is. This zoo has an amazing husbandry program and there is baby everything. I haven't seen the giraffe yet, but the ocelot are adorable. Check out memberships to make it easy and affordable to keep heading back. Parking isn't free and it can be a hassle, but there are plenty of lots available and overflow in the park.

We went down with my family on an Autumn weekend. The Zoo is really nicely laid out, and there were tons of different types of animals. We spent a good 3-4 hours there, and only paid about $7/adult. This is by far the best zoo in the Pacific Northwest. Definitely recommend this to families with animal-loving children!
