Welcome to Perth Zoo

Saving wildlife, together

As human populations grow on our planet, wildlife everywhere is under increasing threat of extinction.

Perth Zoo exists to protect endangered species and to reconnect people to nature. In a very meaningful way, the animal residents at Perth Zoo are inspiring ambassadors for wildlife in need of preservation everywhere. And, every time you come and visit the animals in our care, you are helping to support the vital conservation work we do.

Breeding for Conservation

Zoos are uniquely positioned to establish thriving breeding programs with the animals in our care – for release to the wild or to maintain genetic diversity within zoo insurance populations.

A Sustainable Zoo

Meeting the needs of our visitors, animals and staff without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs. We walk the talk and aim to lessen our environmental footprint in every aspect of Zoo operations.
