Central Park Zoo, New York, New York


World conservation society’s jewel-like Zoo in Manhattan has existed only since 1988 – yet its full history stretches back to the last century. The evolution of this city landmark launched the modern trend in urban zoos around the nation: the transformation of cages and menagerie-style zoos into natural habitat exhibits that educate, involve, and connect people to our natural world.
From a steamy rain forest to an icy Antarctic penguin habitat, the zoo leads visitors through tropic, temperate and polar regions to encounter fascinating animals – from tiny leafcutter ants to tremendous polar bears. The Tisch Children’s Zoo, added in 1997, lets little animal lovers meet gentle creatures up close. Year-round education classes and innovative public programs – including the zoo’s “Wildlife Theater” — encourage all ages to learn more about our natural world, and become involved in its protection.
Through the American Zoo and Aquarium Association’s (AZA) Species Survival Program, the zoo is actively involved in helping endangered species, including rare tamarin monkeys, Wyoming toads, thick-billed parrots, and red pandas.

The Central Park Zoo is open 365 days a year.
10:00 AM – 5:00 PM

Admission:
Adult 13 & over $18

New York Aquarium, Brooklyn, New York


Welcome to the New York Aquarium – where the City meets the Sea. As the only aquarium in New York City and part of the largest network of metropolitan wildlife parks in the country, the New York Aquarium holds a special place in the mission of the Wildlife Conservation Society to save wildlife and wild places around the globe.
Roller-coasters, mermaids, hot dogs galore. The 11 million people who come to Coney Island each year know these local treasures well. But just off the Boardwalk, there are other, less familiar ones.

As the New York Aquarium begins a new chapter in its history, we are bringing New Yorkers up-close to the ocean wonders in our own backyard, connecting both sides of the Boardwalk like never before.

The New York Aquarium is open 365 days a year.
