At Adelaide and Monarto Zoo it’s our mission to protect wildlife and connect people with nature.  Adelaide Zoo is home to more than 2,500 animals and 250 species of exotic and native mammals, birds, reptiles and fish that enjoy eight hectares of beautiful botanic surrounds. Monarto Zoo is home to over 500 animals and 48 species roaming on vistas as far as the eye can see on around 1,000 hectares.

Zoos SA Conversation

Our core business continues to focus on our zoos and educational services which have transformed to become more adaptive, diverse and interactive. However, Zoos SA’s broader commitment to protecting wildlife has significantly grown as we demonstrate world class zoo standards to contribute to local and global efforts to save species. As staff and visitors alike continue to fall in love with our wonderful zoo animals we also work tirelessly to protect their cousins in the wild.  To learn more about Zoos SA’s conservation programs and how you can take action in your own backyard, for your country and your world visit the conservation section of our website.

To help us in our fight to protect wildlife take up our MAD (make a difference) challenges. Learn more about our MAD challenges.
