The mission of Austin Zoo is to assist animals in need through rescue, conservation and education. We currently have over 300 animals, representing more than 100 different species. Our animal collection includes animals from other facilities that are being retired due to age, health or other issues; animals that were seized in animal cruelty cases; retired laboratory research animals and rehomed exotic pets.
Austin Zoo is a private, non-profit zoo and as such, we do not receive any funding from the city or state. Your purchases enable us to continue to care for the animals we have, and to be able to take in new animals that need a safe home. Please remember to indicate 'Austin Zoo' as the beneficiary of your donation at check-out.
With their distinctive black-and-white stripes, zebras have been inspiring artists since pre-historic times. And people have wondered: are zebras white with black stripes or black with white stripes? In Medieval times, people believed that zebras had white bodies with black stripes (perhaps because they have white underbellies). But recent studies have proven that zebras are actually black with white stripes - the stripes being the result of some skin cells not producing pigment.
