LR Zoo Believes!

The Little Rock Zoo brought wildlife to the citizens of Arkansas in 1926 with just two animals:  an abandoned timber wolf and a circus-trained bear.  Today the Little Rock Zoo boasts nearly 700 animals representing more than 200 different species, many being endangered.      

The Little Rock Zoo’s first buildings were made of native Arkansan stone and built by the Works Progress Administration (WPA).  These buildings housed primates, reptiles, birds, and big cats.  Today these buildings are still in use and the cat house has been transformed into Café Africa, a one-of-a-kind restaurant with the feel of an African style lodge.  The Zoo is committed to the historic preservation of these beautiful buildings and guests will see many future renovations.
