Chattanooga Zoo Information

The mission of the Chattanooga Zoo is to provide an educational and recreational opportunity for all.  The educational mission stresses understanding of and respect for all living things. A strong commitment to conservation for generations to come is implicit in this mission.  The Chattanooga Zoo seeks to provide a dignified and aesthetically pleasing environment for the animals. Come spend a couple of hours wandering through the Zoo and getting to know some of the wildest residents of Chattanooga. The Gombe Forest features 5 chimpanzees, including Hank, the best known animal in Chattanooga! Take a stroll through The Himalayan Passage, the newest exhibit, featuring red pandas, snow leopards, langurs and the highly endangered “Bali-Mynahs”. Head up to South America to see the spider monkeys swinging around, the jaguar lounging in the sun, and the macaws striking up a conversation with whomever passes by. Before you go, make sure to stop by the Warner Park Ranch Exhibit and feed the goats – and don’t forget to pat Peanut Butter the “ranch dog” on the head too!
