Saint Louis Zoo, Missouri, USA.

Pictures in this page were taken at the St. Louis Zoo, St. Louis, Missouri. The City of St. Louis set aside 77 acres in Forest Park for a zoo and named a Zoological Board of Control in 1913. State legislation provided that "the zoo shall be forever free," which has kept the Zoo accessible to millions of visitors ever since. The zoo mission is "To conserve animals and their habitats through animal management, research, recreation, and educational programs that encourage the support and enrich the experience of the public".
