We are excited to welcome guests to the Gladys Porter Zoo! After reviewing the updated guidance from the CDC and conferring with local health officials and animal care staff we are updating our safety measures. As part of our updated measures we are requiring facial coverings be worn to enter the Zoo, in all buildings and while participating in any animal feeding encounters. Facial coverings are not required while walking outdoors. At this time, guests and members are no longer required to reserve their date and time slot to visit by purchasing their tickets online in advance of their trip. However, you can still purchase your admission tickets in advance of your visit or purchase a membership. A membership has lots of benefits including an unlimited entrance card for the member that is good for 12 months.
