Dedicated to its founding mission in 1936 as an educational institution, the Staten Island Zoological Society remains at the forefront of weaving effective education programs into its cultural role as a place of adventure, discovery and fun for all age groups. As New York’s “Biggest Little Zoo”, the Staten Island Zoo showcases more than 1,200 animals nestled in a beautiful 8-acre park, reflecting more than 350 species of animals, birds, reptiles, amphibians, fish and invertebrates from six of the world’s seven continents. As an AZA accredited member, the Zoo remains a leader in wildlife conservation, maintaining more than 70 endangered or threatened species and participating in breeding programs and education to highlight the plight of vanishing wildlife throughout the world.
