Modern zoos teach the importance of conservation, sustainability and environmental awareness. The blockbuster exhibit at the Baton Rouge Zoo, ‘Realm of the Tiger,’ immerses guests in the continent of Asia, featuring tigers, Siamang gibbons, a walk-through aviary with Asian birds, plus a Koi pond and rock garden. The exhibit's goal is to help raise awareness of threats to tigers, raise funds for tiger conservation and raise awareness of the important role zoos play in international tiger conservation.
Discover the animal kingdom at BREC’s Baton Rouge Zoo, including giraffes, rhinos and alligators. Visitors always delight at the Flamingo Cove and Giants of the Islands, featuring the Zoo’s Chilean flamingos and Galapagos and Aldabra tortoises. Kids enjoy a stopover at the Safari Playground.
