Smithsonian’s National Zoo

As the nation's zoo, we provide leadership in conservation science. We educate and inspire diverse communities so they become part of our commitment to celebrate, study, and protect animals and their habitats. About 1,800 animals from 300 different species reside at the National Zoo in Washington, D.C. Our best known residents are our giant pandas, but the Zoo is also home to great apes, big cats, Asian elephants, birds, amphibians, reptiles, small mammals, and many more!
