Cheyenne Mountain Zoo

A leader in conservation, captive breeding and animal care, Cheyenne Mountain Zoo connects people with wildlife and wild places through experiences that inspire action. Our vision is that every kid, of any age, will have an experience for a lifetime with every visit. Founded in 1926, the Zoo is a place where memories are made and people of all ages and all walks of life come together to explore the animal kingdom. The Zoo is open every day of the year and is home to more than 1,000 animals representing approximately 142 species, 30 of which are endangered. Cheyenne Mountain Zoo is involved in animal conservation efforts around the world including giraffe in Uganda, elephants and black rhinoceros in Kenya, Cape griffon vultures in South Africa, orangutans in Indonesia, amphibians in Panama, and black-footed ferrets and Wyoming toads in the western United States. Through the Zoo's Quarters for Conservation program, over $3M has been raised for field conservation since 2008.
