Official Description

The Sacramento Zoo, located in California's capital, is the largest accredited zoological park in the demographically diverse Central Valley. Set on 15-acres in William Land Park, the zoo opened in 1927. Accredited by the American Zoo and Aquarium Association since 1975, the zoo collection exhibits more than 400 animals including 32 endangered or threatened species in a lush park environment.

The zoo manages national breeding programs for two endangered species:
thick-billed parrot and golden-bellied mangabey. We offer the zoo visitor wildlife wagons, animal talks, and stage presentations as well as our ZooMobile outreach program. Annual attendance is 450,000, with approximately 80,000 school children visiting the zoo each year on organized field trips.

The Sacramento Zoological Society, formed in 1957, assumed daily financial management of the zoo (from the city of Sacramento) in July 1997. Since its inception, the society has served as the fund-raising organization for the zoo, providing funds for habitat improvement, education and conservation programs
