An important part of the mission of Oakland Zoo is to provide the best care for our animals. In order to continue to be a leader in animal care and habitat design, we must keep ahead of current standards for animal enclosures. To contribute to ongoing capital needs at the Zoo, please contact us at (510) 746-7137.
In 2015, the Oakland Zoo broke ground on the California Trail, a transformational project.
CALIFORNIA TRAIL is a new 56-acre expansion that will engage visitors in the exploration of our state's natural past, present, and future. CALIFORNIA TRAIL will solidify Oakland Zoo as a leader in conservation education and stewardship of the natural world, creating new oppportunities to collaborate with scientists and local wildlife organizations working to preserve, protect, and promote our state's natural history.
