(Some water play areas are now open! Check with a Guest Services Representative for details.)

Zoo Tours

Providing experiences that inspire and motivate our guests is an important aspect of our mission… and one of the best ways to do exactly that is through one of our fun and unique Zoo tours!

Save Our Bffs

BFF may mean Best Friends Forever to many, but at the Phoenix Zoo, our BFFs are black-footed ferrets. Purchase an exclusive shirt to help black-footed ferret conservation.


The Phoenix Zoo is one of the largest non-profit zoos in the U.S., caring for over 3,000 animals with nearly 400 species represented, including many threatened and endangered species.

Our Work

Working with our conservation partners, the Phoenix Zoo looks for opportunities to use our unique skills and experience to help them. Phoenix Zoo conservation scientists raise and breed species at the Zoo’s Arthur L. and Elaine V. Johnson Conservation Center for release to the wild and/or to help understand their biology and reproduction. 


How You Can Help

The Arizona Center for Nature Conservation/Phoenix Zoo advances the stewardship and conservation of animals and their habitats while providing experiences that inspire people and motivate them to care for the natural world. As one of the largest non-profit zoos in the country, the Phoenix Zoo relies solely on the support of our guests, donors and sponsors.
