About

Located in historic Uptown New Orleans Audubon Zoo offers an exotic mix of animals from around the globe, engaging educational programs, hands-on animal encounters and lush gardens. Unique natural habitat exhibits—such as the award-winning Louisiana Swamp and Jaguar Jungle—showcase the relationship between people and nature. Don't miss the sea lion and elephant presentations; highly endangered whooping cranes, Amur leopards and orangutans; our white tiger; and our mysterious white alligators. Audubon Zoo is often ranked among the country’s best for innovation and entertainment value!

Filmed by the Louisiana Farm Bureau, Audubon Zoo grounds director Dianne Weber describes how horticulture staff is working to preserve the stately collection of oaks in Audubon Zoo and Audubon Park, the oldest living history in New Orleans. Weber explains how her team cares for the trees, work that includes the careful installation of lightning rods on Audubon’s 150 or so historic oaks, some of which are more than 250 years old.
