The Queens Zoo, part of the Wildlife Conservation Society, is
home to more than 40 species of wildlife native to the Americas.
From the bison range to the historic geodesic dome aviary, the
zoo spans 11 acres of outdoor exhibits. The expansive domestic
animal area offers young visitors a chance to feed and touch a
variety of goats, sheep, and other barnyard favorites.
A young Andean bear born last year is a crowd pleaser. He
actively explores his habitat making for an exciting zoo-going
experience while visitors learn about WCS conservation efforts
for this and other species. The zoo is open 365 days a year.
Inside scoop: Just outside the zoo is a carousel with 64 jumping
horses, a lion, and a few chariots.
