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!

Follow us at FacebookTwitter and Instagram for daily updates and check out our new rotating animal webcams at Live Webcams!

Don't forget our STLZOOm live webinars and virtual Conservation Learning opportunities thanks to our Saint Louis Zoo Educators!

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

Your donation will offset ongoing operational costs associated with the animal care at the Zoo.
It costs nearly $3,200 a week to provide fresh fish for our animals. 
Our yellow-crowned night heron, Sassy, loves to “help” with diet prep to make sure we divide the fish properly. She likes to come in from her home at the Cypress Swamp in the 1904 Flight Cage to help keepers. She also just happens to be in nesting mode and likes to carry sticks with her from time to time as you can see. #BringTheStlZooToYou

New Arrival

Director of Animal Health Dr. Sathya Chinnadurai, Bird Keeper Sara and Quarantine Keeper Mallory are performing a quarantine examination on a white ibis. All new arrivals to the Saint Louis Zoo are quarantined for a minimum of 30 days before they go to their new Zoo homes. This time period allows staff to evaluate all incoming animals to make sure they are healthy before introducing them to our collection. #BringTheStlZooToYou
“When you get the feeling you are being watched!”
The Children’s Zoo alpacas, Andrus and Freeman, take regular walks around the Saint Louis Zoo with their keepers. While on a recent walk, Freeman noticed a popular resident of The Wild checking them out.
Did you miss Andrus and Freeman’s trip to visit the apes from March? You can watch it here.
