The intersections of law and conservation are of particular interest to Mridula Vijairaghavan, Legal Director of WCS India. Working in a region that sees too much illegal trade of endangered animals such as pangolins and tiger products, Mridula will discuss the importance of science translating into policy and better implementation of existing law and policy as measures for conservation. She says, “experiences from my childhood and formative years pushed me to take environmental law up as a career.” Tune in as we learn more about her path towards this career, celebrate World Pangolin Day, and explore why conservation really needs a strong interdisciplinary approach to have a chance at creating impact. Please feel free to contact the registrars by phone (800-433-4149) or email (bzeducation@wcs.org) if you have any questions. Advanced registration required.

  • The Bronx Zoo is open year-round. We close on the following holidays: Thanksgiving Day, Christmas Day, New Year's Day, and Martin Luther King Day. Spring and summer are naturally high-attendance seasons, but we encourage guests to visit during fall and winter as well. When the weather cools off, many animals are more active and you'll encounter fewer crowds. 

    With 265 acres of wildlife habitats and attractions, it's difficult to see the entire zoo in one day. For shorter visits, take a two-hour tour of our most popular exhibits, like Tiger Mountain, Himalayan Highlands, Congo Gorilla Forest, and World of Reptiles. During the warmer months, guests with young children can begin their visit at the Children's Zoo and then stroll Astor Court to meet our sea lions and visit Madagascar! In wintertime, warm up in JungleWorld, our giant indoor rainforest habitat.
