Founded in 1868, Lincoln Park Zoo is dedicated to connecting people with nature through a free, family-oriented wildlife experience in the heart of Chicago and by advancing the highest quality of animal care, education, science, and conservation.
As populations increase, it’s crucial to find ways for people and wildlife to thrive together. This is a charge Lincoln Park Zoo is ready to lead. We’re at the forefront of studying how people and nature clash and coexist, and teaching visitors of all backgrounds how nature must be integrated in our lives for healthy, happy futures for people and animals alike.
Our vision: Inspire communities to create environments where wildlife will thrive in our urbanizing world.
