– There are more than 2,800 zoos and aquariums in the world.
– Germany has more zoos than any other country – 414!
– The US has more than 350 zoos. The total number of AZA accredited zoos and aquariums is 232.
– Over 30 US zoos have more than 1 million visitors a year. Disney’s Animal Kingdom has the most with 9.5 million visitors each year.
– The Philadelphia Zoo is the oldest zoo in the US. It opened on July 1, 1874.

Thank you for those lovely photos. Just visited the Philadelphia Zoo the other day – enjoyed seeing a red panda traveling in the Zoo 360 overhead trail system and the four lionesses in another part of the trails. Check it out!
