Things to Do
No trip to the Queens Zoo is complete without a visit to the Aviary. Step inside and you’ll be walking amongst cattle egrets, scarlet macaws, sun conures, bobwhite quails, sandhill cranes, black-crowned night herons, and many other amazing birds.
Goats have great personalities! Come and get to know them along with the other gentle animals including sheep, donkeys, cows, and alpacas. Enjoy a day out on the farm in the heart of Queens.
Sea Lion Pool
In their pool at the heart of the park, our sea lions are some of the zoo’s most popular residents. They're also noisy, particularly during training time.
Explore the diversity of wildlife from the Americas here: Andean bears, the only bears native to South America; Chacoan peccaries once believed extinct; pudu, the tiniest of deer; and many other species.
From fish to fowl, amphibians to reptiles, all the animals in the Waterfowl Marsh are native to the Americas.
