Santa Barbara Zoo

Originally a part of the famous Child Estate property, the Santa Barbara Zoo was founded in August 1963 by a devoted group of community volunteers. The Santa Barbara Zoo is dedicated to the preservation, conservation, and enhancement of the natural world and its living treasures through education, research, and recreation. Known as one of the most beautiful zoos in the world, the Santa Barbara Zoo is located on 30 acres of lush botanic gardens overlooking the Pacific Ocean near the Santa Barbara waterfront.
