The Santa Barbara Zoo is dedicated to the preservation, conservation and enhancement of the natural world and its living treasures through education, research, and recreation. There are over 600 animals (180+ species), carousel, train, and much more.
Many people become members of the zoo becoming involved in helping to conserve rare and endangered species. As a Member, you will receive free or discounted admission to over 100 other zoos in the United States. As a private, non-profit corporation, we need support of our members to care for our animals, acquire new animals, and build new exhibits.
The Zoo offers workshops to help teachers integrate the Zoo into their science curriculum. Teachers will learn to use biological artifacts as instructional models. After completing the workshop, teachers will be able to lead a tour using our hands-on Bio-Bags during their zoo visit! The course will include an introduction to Zoology, Zoo history, and environmental education.
The Zoo is located on over 30 acres with its lovely gardens and picturesque views overlooking East Beach -- approximately 30 minutes North of Ventura, and 30 minutes South of Solvang.
Note: We do not allow skateboards, rollerblades, bicycles, RV's, dogs or barbecues in the Zoo or the parking lot. Thank you for your cooperation.
