New Orleans Audubon Zoo

The Audubon Zoo is renowned for being one of the best zoos in the country with more than 1800 of the world's rarest animals displayed in their natural habitats.

The zoo boasts an impressive 58 acre area. One of the most famous exhibits is the Louisiana Swamp Exhibit which is the world's only urban swamp. The swamp is blooming with wildlife and natural vegetation native to natural swamps in Louisiana. Over 100 species live within these swamps including white alligators and the alligator snapping turtle.

Attractive Items:

White alligators and white tigers you may have never seen. These species are some of the rarest in the world.

How to get there:

Walk (or take bus/taxi) 15 minutes toward the river and you will arrive at the end of Canal Street. There you can board the Riverboat, JOHN JAMES AUDUBON, which is the Mississippi River link between two world-class facilities, the Aquariums of Americas and the Audubon Zoo. It is a 7-mile cruise and the busy port of New Orleans can be appreciated during the trip. Educational signage presented by the Audubon Institute focus on natural science issues pertaining to our local environment.
