Much about the San Antonio Zoo has changed since Colonel Brackenridge assembled his collection of animals in 1914. While the Colonel may not have imagined what the San Antonio Zoo would become, we can only hope that he would appreciate all that the Zoo has accomplished for the people of San Antonio, for science, for children, and for the Earth itself. For 99 years, the collective efforts of dedicated individuals have helped the San Antonio Zoo become one of the best in the nation.
The Zoo is home to over 9,000 animals representing 750 species of animals on 56 acres. More than 1,000,000 guests visit the San Antonio Zoo annually - 13,155 of those being children participating in education programs and 80,000 school children coming on field trips.
