The Pittsburgh Zoo & PPG Aquarium brings you nature in High Definition! With 39 threatened or endangered species and more than 2,000 animals, the Pittsburgh Zoo is the best place in the area to connect with wildlife. The zoo offers countless exhibits, programs, and various options for ticket discounts!
You’ll discover a world of wildlife living in their naturalistic habitats as you stroll through the largest temperate botanical gardens in the region. Our young polar bears and sea otters swim and play near an Arctic fishing village at the new Water’s Edge exhibit. Spectacularly colorful fish, awesome sharks, playful penguins, and an ocean of aquatic life entertain and celebrate the diversity of water in the PPG Aquarium. Amazing elephants, giraffes, and zebras roam across the African Savanna. Amur tiger cubs and a Komodo dragon make a visit to the Asian Forest a thrill. And slithering snakes and ravenous reptiles will show you the real meaning of the word WILD in Worlds of Discovery! For the young ones, Kids Kingdom – with its petting areas and animal playgrounds – was voted a top three children’s zoos in the country.
