Our Animals

Home to over 2,000 animals!

The Metro Richmond Zoo is home to over 2,000 animals representing 180 species from around the world. All animals at the Zoo have access to food, water, and shelter at all times and medical care when needed. We have professional, trained zoo keepers who care for the animals 365 days a year. The Zoo has an on-site Animal Hospital where our vet staff administers medical care when needed. Our zoo keepers provide the animals with enrichment items to play with. The health and safety of our animals is our #1 priority!

The Zoo is well known for our successful endangered animal breeding programs. For more information about our conservation efforts, click here.
