Zoo Dos & Don'ts:
DO have a great time at the Buffalo Zoo! If you have any questions or need help, please speak to any Zoo associate.
DO understand that animals need rest and privacy just like humans. Zoo animals have access to off-exhibit areas during the day and may not always be available for public viewing.
DO keep the Zoo clean by placing all litter in the proper trash and recycling receptacles.
DO drop off your map at the main entrance so we can recycle or reuse it.
DO wear shirt and shoes when in the Zoo.
DONíT FEED THE ANIMALS. Each of our animals receives nutritionally balanced diets designed for their specific needs.
DON'T cross fences or railings. Zoo animals are wild animals, not pets. Their exhibits and enclosures are designed to protect you and the animals from harm.
DON'T bring radios, skateboards, skates, bicycles, balloons, glass, grills, rollerblades, alcohol, squirt guns, frisbees, balls, or pets into the Zoo.
AND PLEASE NOTE... special circumstances including construction, births, feeding and veterinary procedures may require that specific animals be removed from public viewing to ensure their best possible care. There are no refunds due to animal availability or weather.
