GSBA Member Spotlight - The Woodland Park Zoo

by Joshua Michael Rumley, Event & Office Coordinator

Woodland Park Zoo

Escape the urban Seattle jungle and explore your animal instincts at the Woodland Park Zoo! Come face to face with some of Mother Nature's wildest animals; penguins, gorillas, lions, leopards and bears, and I'm not talking about the burly "bears" running around Capitol Hill. The Greater Seattle Business Association is delighted to welcome The Woodland Park Zoo to the GSBA family!

The zoo boasts an impressive assortment of animals, over 300 different animal species can be viewed at the zoo. The Woodland Park Zoo even offers an online database of the current animals showcased at the zoo, giving guests ample time to plan which animals to see first before their visit. The database is a fun and educational way to get detailed information about the animals at the zoo including details about their classification, range in the natural world, lifespan, diet, maps and a bunch of fun photos.

"We will be completely renovating our current Tigers and Asian Bears exhibit and linking it to our Asian Tropical Forest areas. There will be multiple viewing areas for guests, and opportunities to get 'Real Close' to the animals on display, as well as learn about the conservation programs that Woodland Park Zoo participates in that directly affect these animals in the wild," said Jennifer Larsen, Woodland Park Zoo Tourism Coordinator.

The Woodland Park Zoo offers an amazing deal for guests who wish to become zoo members. Becoming a zoo member not only supports the zoo in their expansion of current exhibits and programs but it also provides resources for the beloved animals of the zoo. When someone becomes a zoo member they receive year-round free admission, inside information about the zoo animals, discounts on classes and zoo programs and news about wild animals and places in our own backyard.
