A New Zoo for You
Thanks to capital bonds supported by voters, city monies, and donations provided by private individuals, foundations, and corporations, the Zoo has completed 11 major capital projects over the last 15 years. New homes for all of the great apes, as well as elephants, seals, domestic animals, and the varied taxa living in the LAIR have been completed. Additionally, a major new animal health center, education facilities, and a new Zoo entrance have been completed. Most recently, Rainforest of the Americas, the final project in Phase I of the Los Angeles Zoo and Botanical Gardens, opened to the public.
