Great Plains Zoo & Delbridge Museum of Natural History
As an accredited member of the Association of Zoos & Aquariums (AZA), the Great Plains Zoo & Delbridge Museum of Natural History in Sioux Falls, SD strives to fulfill four major objectives: Education, Conservation, Recreation and Discovery.
The Great Plains Zoo cares for hundreds of animals from around the world. The 45-acre park offers up-close views of animals often not found in larger zoos, including Giraffes, Amur Tigers, Black Rhinos and a national award-winning Snow Monkey exhibit.
From Anteaters to Zebras, the Great Plains Zoo cares for all types of animals and is home to several animals that are endangered or critically endangered in the wild. Visitors can view almost all of the Zoo’s animals year-round, so there’s fun and learning opportunities 361 days a year! Take advantage of educational tours or up-close encounters during your visit, planning ahead by visiting greatzoo.org. There are even virtual options for those that can’t visit in person!
The Zoo is also a regional education leader, reaching up to 40,000 adults and children each year with interactive ZooMobiles and hands-on programming at the Zoo for infants through early high schoolers, including STEM and nature-inspired classes. The Zoo also includes the Delbridge Museum of Natural History, a one-in-the-world collection of 150 mounted animals including 38 “vanishing species.”
