Audubon Zoo

Elephant Exhibit – Reopening 2016

Audubon’s elephants make specially scheduled public appearances as they (and we!) await completion of their brand new, spacious exhibit. When not in public view, they’re taking it easy behind-the-scenes, getting ready for the big ribbon-cutting on their new habitat in 2016.

Don't Miss Audubon Zoo's Highlights:

  • Asian Domain
    While we work to expand Asian Domain, you can still see beautiful leopards, wave to the sun bears, visit Audubon’s famous white tiger and watch the playful babirusa and small-clawed otters as we make one of Audubon’s most beautiful areas even more special. The new orangutan exhibit opening in 2015 and the new elephant exhibit will open in 2016.
  • Favorite Exhibits
    While we are busy creating new adventures for you throughout Audubon Zoo, remember to swing by two of Audubon Zoo’s most famous exhibits. The Louisiana Swamp is a true swamp experience in the middle of the city, with gators galore and the Cypress Knee Café if you want to grab a snack. Right next to the Swamp, Jaguar Jungle features animals like lively spider monkeys, anteaters and the incredible jaguars, exhibited amid Central America stone structures carved to look just like the originals.
