Join the Bronx Zoo for their newest interactive series highlighting diverse professionals in STEM careers called "Not All Scientists Wear Lab Coats: A WCS Global Scientist Series." In each session, you'll learn about a different conservation issue, meet a Wildlife Conservation Society staff member actively working on solutions, and discover how their unique pathway to a STEM career was influenced by their identity. Sessions are remote. 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. Learn more about her path towards this career, celebrate World Pangolin Day with this interactive series that explores why conservation really needs a strong interdisciplinary approach to have a chance at creating impact. 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.
