Polar bear at Maryland Zoo
Average: 4 (1 vote)

The Maryland Zoo in Baltimore is the third oldest zoo in the United States, dating back to 1876. It was created by an Act of the Maryland General Assembly that called for "a zoological collection within the limits of Druid Hill Park for the purpose of public exhibition for the instruction and recreation of the people." Today the Zoo’s focus is on wildlife conservation and education. It is an active participant in breeding programs for several endangered or threatened animals, including elephants, chimpanzees, polar bears, and African penguins. The Maryland Zoo is also one of the founding members of Project Golden Frog, a conservation consortium trying to prevent the extinction of Panamanian Golden Frogs and the home for the Mountain Gorilla Veterinary Project, which provides health care and lifesaving medical procedures to wild mountain gorillas in their native habitats.
The Zoo's Tree habitat in the Children's Zoo is a replica of a White Oak tree trunk featuring a series of exhibits on arboreal species and a spectacular slide.

Tickets can be purchased online.
