Our animal pages are under construction. If there is a Sedgwick County Zoo animal page you would like us to complete sooner rather than later — please let us know. We will do our best to give your favorite animal page first priority.

Meanwhile, you can use the web to find information about specific animal species, habitats, conservation programs and much more. The internet is a great place to start – however you need to be specific regarding your search and you need reliable sources.

Start your search by using the animal’s scientific name. You can click on the sort options above to find the scientific name for each of the species found at your Sedgwick County Zoo. If you don’t know the scientific name of the animal you are researching try using an online encyclopedia. You can also narrow your internet search using the common name of the animal. Instead of searching for “bears,” try “grizzly bear” or “black bear” this will eliminate information such as teddy bears or Chicago Bears. Good luck in your quest for knowledge.
