The Cincinnati Zoo was recently rated the #1 attraction locally and one of the top zoos in the nation by Zagat Survey. It was recognized by Parents Magazine as #7 on the “Top 10 Best Zoos for Kids.” Over one million people visit the Zoo’s award-winning exhibits, and more than 500 animal and 3000 plant species annually.

The Cincinnati Zoo & Botanical Garden is home to animals, plants, keepers, educators, scientists, conservationists, photographers, horticulturists, designers, writers, creative thinkers, interns and volunteers! Most staff members are here because we are passionate about the Zoo’s mission. This blog allows us to share our passion using various methods of expression.
