Utah’s Hogle Zoo is accredited by the Association of Zoos and Aquariums— an honor that is given to just ten percent of zoos across the nation. This means that we’re equipped to deliver exceptional animal care and top-tier visitor experiences.
Every ticket we sell helps us become champions for the animals we love— those both at the zoo and in the wild.
With your help, we have invested in several conservation initiatives. These include (but are not limited to) constructing ranger stations in Uganda, outfitting orangutan research teams in Borneo, and securing critical boreal toad habitats here in Utah.
With the help of professional researchers and members of the community, our conservation team conducts several projects to answer real-world questions.
