Roger Williams Park Zoo Information and Shopping Tips:

Roger Williams Park Zoo is an accredited member of the Association of Zoos and Aquariums (AZA), and is home to many endangered species. As a result, the Zoo participates in cooperative conservation and breeding programs to help ensure the future survival of many endangered species. Roger Williams Park Zoo is supported and managed by the Rhode Island Zoological Society, and is owned by the City of Providence.In 1872, Roger Williams Park Zoo, the country's third oldest Zoo, opened its doors to the public with a collection of small animal exhibits throughout Providence's newly formed Roger Williams Park. Conservation and environmental education were unknown concepts at the time; the animals were simply on display.

Today, Roger Williams Park Zoo provides visitors the opportunity to see animals from all over the globe – some more than a million years old. Naturalistic surroundings are home to more than 160 animals including a Komodo dragon, as well as zebras, red pandas, African elephants, Masai giraffes, snow leopards, bears, anteaters, flamingoes, sloths, alligators, and more! What started as a scattered collection of small animals on display purely for the purpose of entertainment has today evolved into "New England's great zoo" (The Boston Globe) and one of our region's foremost centers for conservation and environmental education. In 1986, Roger Williams Park Zoo became the first Zoo in New England to earn accreditation from the Association of Zoos and Aquariums.
