About El Paso
Zoo Education Program


Our mission at the El Paso Zoo is to celebrate the value of animals and natural resources and to create opportunities for people to rediscover their connection to nature.

The new Zoo Adventure Program helps the Zoo accomplish this mission. Revenue from registration fees along with zoo admission tickets, Zoological Society memberships and gift shop and restaurant concessions stays at the Zoo to offset Zoo operating expenses. These expenses include the purchase of hay for our elephants, fish for our sea lions, fruits and vegetables for our monkeys and all kinds of other food items for over 250 species of animals.

Zoo Adventure Program revenues also help people and wildlife share habitats around the world including burrowing owls here in El Paso, Mexican wolves in Arizona and New Mexico, black-footed ferrets and jaguars in northern Mexico and Asian elephants in Sumatra.
