Baton Rouge Zoo

BREC’s Baton Rouge Zoo is the perfect place for family-friendly fun all year long! The Zoo is home to animals from around the world including tigers, black rhinos, flamingos, alligators and giraffes.

In addition to showcasing all of these beautiful animals, the Baton Rouge Zoo also takes strides in the conservation and protection of animals by participating in 30 international Species Survival Plans for critically endangered species. The Zoo’s Guam Rail, Arabian Onyx and Golden Lion Tamarin have been successfully reintroduced in the wild and represent the Zoo’s commitment to conservation.

The zoo hosts a number of events throughout the year. Some can’t-miss events are Zoo Lights and Brew at the Zoo, among others! Explore your wild side and visit the Baton Rouge Zoo.
