The Zoological Society also manages the 1,800-acre San Diego Zoo's Wild Animal Park and the center for – more... Conservation and Research for Endangered Species. The zoo entertains all with its daily shows, in-park restaurants, guided tours, and special events. The society also supports conservation education and efforts, such as planned travel adventure-tours to exotic destinations such as Mexico or Africa. It was founded by Dr. Harry Wegeforth in 1916. – less
