Meet animals from around the world at Santa Barbara Zoo.

If you're short on time, the Zoo Map highlights the "Must-See" exhibits. Check out the Visitor Kiosk just inside the front entrance for keeper talks and other events. Also, check the event calendar before you visit, as sometimes the Zoo hosts after-hours events that require early closure.
