Audubon Zoo, New Orleans

4.6
#1 of 12 in Zoos & Aquariums in Louisiana
Home to more than 2,000 animals, Audubon Zoo is named after famed artist and naturalist John James Audubon. The zoo created a name for itself by providing a home for a white tiger and two blue-eyed alligators. During Hurricane Katrina, zoo staff took refuge in the reptile house, which is designed to withstand storms. Despite financial setbacks after the storm, the zoo reopened and added a swamp exhibit with a themed Hurricane Katrina house and a collection of local species.

  • Take a break from the usual NOLA festivities and visit this special zoo. The animals celebrate mardi gras every day - with attentive care of their keepers. This is a happy place!  more »
