As the 2015 winner of the Quarter Century Award for 25 years of accreditation, the Alexandria Zoological Park has been nothing less than 100% dedicated to continuously raising the bar in education, veterinary care, animal care, educational staffing, guest services, conservation, security, and everything else that is involved in maintaining and running a zoo. It was established in 1986 and today, it is the Louisiana zoo to visit. Between the Teen Trek, summer safari, school field trips and educator resources that this zoo offers, there is no limit to what you can learn about the animals that are the center of the conservation efforts that are made.
As the 2015 winner of the Quarter Century Award for 25 years of accreditation, the Alexandria Zoological Park supports and participates in a myriad of conservation efforts. This includes participating in Saving Animals From Extinction (AZA SAFE), a Gorilla Socks partner, which involves developing plans to figure out how to conserve endangered species before they become extinct. The plans that the Alexandria Zoological Park creates and implements to conserve specific endangered species are abundant. With over 50 species survival plans, this zoological park takes their role in the conservation of endangered species seriously. The species survival plans that this zoo supports in its global initiative are the Jaguar, Andean Condor, Andean Bear, Giant Anteater, Brazilian Tapir, Malayan Tiger, African Lion, Vaquita, Whooping Crane, and Snow Leopard projects. In addition, the Alexandria Zoological Park supports the Zoo Conservation Outreach Group.
