Official Description

The Lake Superior Zoo is located in the beautiful lakeside city of Duluth, and is one of only 180 zoo's and aquariums (out of more than 1800) in the United States to have achieved the ranking of an Accredited Institution of the American Zoo and Aquarium Association (AZA). It is one of three accredited zoos in Minnesota and the only one outside of the Greater Metro Area.

Nearly 150,000 people visit the Lake Superior Zoo annually.  While they come from every state and at least twelve foreign countries, the majority are residents of Northern Minnesota.  In addition to the large numbers of Arrowhead Region visitors, a significant block of visitors are from the Twin Cities and Southern Minnesota who weekend or vacation in our area.

Arrowhead Zoological Society, Inc., d.b.a., Lake Superior Zoological Society is a 501(c)3 private, non profit organization that was formally established in 1959 to assist with the operation, growth, and improvement of the Lake Superior Zoo (formerly known as the Duluth Zoo). The society is governed by a Board of Directors made up of volunteers from the community.

The society, under an agreement with the City of Duluth, operates the gift shop and concessions at the Zoo. The Society also sells memberships, organizes special events, handles marketing, admissions, office administration and finances the education program. The Society raises funds through various means to help support its mission. Some of these funds were used to build the Primate Conservation Center and to help renovate the Grigg's Learning Center into a multi-purpose room that will bring together animals, people, education, and fun.
