Our guests and supporters join the Zoo in making a difference with every visit and dollar spent. Funds raised go directly to field conservation projects worldwide.

Everything we do, we do it for them.

The Abilene Zoo also aims to tie exceptional in-house husbandry, medical care, research, and education programs to conservation action in the world around us. Inspiring children, families, and everyone between to care about the future for wildlife.

Saving Baby Birds

Abilene Zoo’s Bird Rehabilitation Center is helping Big Country birds in a big way!  We take in injured, orphaned, and abandoned birds with the goal to rehabilitate them and release them back into the wild.

Hours: Open 9 am to 4 pm daily
