While the Zoo is closed to the public, we want to #BringTheStlZooToYou! We have asked our animal care team to share some photos and videos of our animals. Please keep in mind we will be operating under unusual circumstances and limited staff. Our first priority is the care and well-being of our animals, but when we can, we will be happy to add something fun and positive to your newsfeed!
Our staff remain dedicated to the animals in our care. Your support is vital to our future. Please consider making a contribution to our Critical Animal Care Fund.
The Saint Louis Zoo has announced Saturday, June 13 as its reopening date for the public. Read full info: stlzoo.org/guestnotice

So You Think You Can Dance?
Who’s ready for a dance break? Check out our male ostrich Nelson showing off his impressive dance moves for you. Male ostriches take courtship very seriously and put their dancing skills to the test in an effort to attract females. Nelson lives in the giraffe habitat in Red Rocks, so when we’re open again, head up the hill and show off your dance moves for him! #BringTheStlZooToYou
Time for Your Close Up Kali
Have you been watching polar bear Kali on our live webcam? You can watch him every Monday and Friday starting at 9 a.m. at stlzoo.org/webcams.
Here is some great video of Kali swimming in his pools to hold you until Friday! #BringTheStlZooToYou
Real or Fake?
#KeeperPerspective Did you know that our giraffes have a fake tree in their habitat fabricated by the Zoo’s exhibits department? It looks like a real tree but it has a pulley system inside of it so keepers can hang enrichment or food at the perfect height for these tall animals. Recently the giraffes enjoyed playing with one of their newer enrichment items called a hay play feeder with tree branches in it. #BringTheStlZooToYou
