About Natural Bridge Zoo

The Natural Bridge Zoo opened its doors to the general public in 1972 and has been growing ever since. The main purpose for Natural Bridge Zoo has always been the propagation and rearing of threatened or endangered species. We try to offer students and the general public the opportunity to learn about the living animals, birds, and reptiles that share the Earth with us. More than 100 baby animals are born each year at Natural Bridge Zoo.
