The Bronx Zoo

Established in 1899, the Bronx Zoo was the flagship of the largest network of metropolitan zoos in the country. The zoo was created as part of the New York Zoological Society -- now the Wildlife Conservation Society -- with the purpose to create a zoological park, advance the study of zoology, protect wildlife, and educate the public. Today, the zoo features over 4,000 animals in habitats such as Congo Gorilla Forest, Himalayan Highlands Habitat, and an indoor Asian Rain Forest.
