The Henry Doorly Zoo has evolved from the small Riverview Park zoo, established in 1894, into a world class tourist attraction and a leader in environmental education. Omaha’s Henry Doorly Zoo has four primary objectives: conservation, research, recreation, and education. In promoting these objectives on a local, regional, national, and global scale, the Zoo provides exciting recreational opportunities that simultaneously enhance our visitors’ knowledge of the natural world. The Henry Doorly Zoo has many innovative facilities and exhibits to not only preserve a broad array of species, but also vividly present them to the public.
