The mission of the Jackson Zoo is to provide visitors with a quality educational and recreational facility dedicated to wildlife care and conservation. Exhibits, activities and special events are designed to fullfill this mission for the Zoo's audience base. For more than 85 years the Jackson Zoo has provided innovative approaches to animal management, conservation research, and education all in a fun, wholesome environment. It is a place where all are welcome to discover new experiences, be entertained, seek knowledge, and enjoy the beauty and wonders of the Zoo and its animal collection.
