As part of our Oasis Plaza, the Conservation Carousel takes kids of all ages for a whimsical spin on some of world’s most endangered and threatened animals. Each is a unique work of art, hand carved and painted by skilled craftsmen. All proceeds from the ride are directed to Hogle Zoo conservation causes.

Hogle Zoo is accredited by the Association of Zoos and Aquariums. For perspective, of the more than 2,000 USDA-licensed wildlife exhibitors in the country, fewer than 10% have achieved accreditation. By being AZA accredited, Hogle Zoo is recognized as one of the top zoos in the world.
