Oregon Zoo

Elephant capital of North America

Save to my Account

No two ways about it: This is a terrific zoo. Walk among the zoo’s birds, mammals, reptiles, amphibians and invertebrates. Of these, 21 species are endangered and 33 are threatened. The Oregon Zoo is known for its efforts to help breed and rear endangered condors.

In addition, 27 Asian elephants have been born here since 1962, establishing the zoo as one of the foremost elephant-breeding facilities in the world. Don’t forget to say hello to Packy, the tallest and oldest male Asian elephant in the U.S.

The zoo also hosts summer evening concerts and a holiday season ZOOLIGHTS celebration, which draws huge crowds every year.
