Situated on 15.5 acres along the Genesee River, the Zoo is a gem among Greater Rochester’s family attractions. The Zoo leads conservation efforts locally, regionally and internationally. African lions, olive baboons and African elephants that reside in our A Step Into Africa Exhibit inspire guests to care about the Ngorongoro Crater, a unique conservation area in Tanzania. A stop in the ECO Center introduces our visitors to the playful North American river otters and living dinosaurs, the lake sturgeon, which help convey stories of successful species reintroduction into the Genesee River. The Rocky Coasts Exhibit offers underwater views of the habitats of our polar bears, sea lions and African penguins. Bornean orangutans, a white rhino, a curious mob of meerkats, a pair of ring-tailed lemurs and a pair of snow leopards round out your memorable Zoo experience. A place for serious fun, committed to serious conservation efforts.
