Zoo Etiquette

A few things TO DO and a few things NOT TO DO when visiting the zoo

For animal wellbeing, your safety, and common courtesy to other Zoo Boise visitors please review the following Zoo Etiquette guidelines with your group before visiting the zoo. Before reviewing the guidelines, ask the group to generate their own guidelines to remember while at the zoo.

If you do not follow these guidelines, you and your group will be asked to leave Zoo Boise.

Thank you for your cooperation and enjoy your day at Zoo Boise!
