Located in historic Uptown New Orleans, Audubon Zoo offers an exotic mix of animals from around the globe, engaging educational programs, hands-on animal encounters and lush gardens. Unique natural habitat exhibits such as the award-winning Louisiana Swamp and Jaguar Jungle showcase the relationship between people and nature. Don't miss the daily animal presentations, chats and feeds; our highly endangered whooping cranes, Amur leopards, and orangutans; our tiger; and our mysterious white alligators. Audubon Zoo is consistently one of the country’s top-ranked zoos, voted as one of the top ten zoos in the country in the USA Today “10Best” reader poll and ranked as one of the top things to do in New Orleans.
Audubon Zoo, Audubon Aquarium of the Americas, Audubon Butterfly Garden and Insectarium, Audubon Nature Center Interpretive Center, Planetarium, Clubhouse, Riverview Park, Golf, and Tennis Courts are closed until further notice out of concern for the safety, health, and welfare of our employees, our members, our visitors, our families, and our entire community.
