Saint Louis Zoo

The Saint Louis Zoological Park (commonly known as the Saint Louis Zoo) is a zoo in Forest Park, St. Louis, Missouri. It is recognized as a leading zoo in animal management, research, conservation, and education.
The city purchased its first exhibit, the Flight Cage, from the Smithsonian Institution following the 1904 St. Louis World's Fair. After the zoo was established in 1910, new exhibits, areas and buildings were added through the decades to improve care of the animals, the range of animals and habitats shown, as well as education and interpretation.
The Saint Louis Zoo features offices and classrooms, year-round exhibits, a mixed-use development that links the complex with the adjacent Dogtown neighborhood, and an "iconic" connection of the two sites over Interstate 64.
