The Prospect Park Zoo is located in Brooklyn, New York. It is part of the Wildlife Conservation Society, which partnered with the New York Department of Parks and Recreation in the 1980s to create a zoo that mimicked the natural habitats of its animals. Groundbreaking on the zoo began in 1987, and it was opened to the public in 1993. It contains over 400 animals representing more than 100 species.
The zoo is part of the Wildlife Conservation Society’s network of animal parks in New York City. The others include the Bronx Zoo, the Central Park Zoo, the New York Aquarium, and the Queens Zoo. It offers programs for kids and families, including a Girl Scouts program, summer camp, and a Discovery Center where children can interact with and learn about the zoo’s animals.
