The Oakland Zoo is a fantastic place to come and visit with the family. By actively partaking in conservation projects, and encouraging visitors of the zoo to participate in these projects, the Oakland Zoo is promoting the protection of wildlife environments through exciting animal exhibits and educational programs.  This Oakland attraction strives to promote a healthier lifestyle for everyone visiting, by “going green.” This is why the Oakland Zoo can also be referred to as the Green Zoo.
