The Abilene Zoo

The Abilene Zoo in Abilene, Jones and Taylor, United States | Zoo

Welcome to The Abilene Zoo, Abilene, Texas, United States. The Abilene Zoo maintains a collection of both plants and animals. The animal exhibits are surrounded by plants native to Texas, including butterfly gardens.

The Abilene Zoo cares for more than 500 animals representing over 200 species. The Zoo maintains two species of primates, Black Rhinos, Giraffes, Zebras, Jaguars, Bison, a diverse selection of reptiles, and several aquariums.

The Abilene Zoo Education Department provides educational programs, summer camps, weekend educational programs, pre-school classes, tours, and special events year-round.   The Abilene Zoo has initiated an Adopt an Animal Program as a way for individuals and organizations to show their support for conservation and their community, while getting involved with one of the most popular attractions in the Big Country. 

At the Abilene Zoo, the animals already receive the best of nutritious food, medical care, and attention. However, costs of daily care and maintenance consume a large part of the Zoo's annual budget and additional funds are needed for improvement projects such as habitat enrichment and repair, as well as the larger projects planned in the Zoo's master plan. Funds donated to the Adopt-an-Animal program are used for these purposes.
