The mission of the Racine Zoological Society is to foster an enlightening and affordable wildlife experience that improves the bond between people and nature. The Society will provide for the recreation and education of the people, the conservation of wildlife and wild places, and the advancement of science.
Our vision is to be a sanctuary for positive interaction between people and the natural world.
The Racine Zoo was established in 1923 at Racine’s Island Park. Its first home, however, was quite temporary and in 1925 the Zoo moved to its present 28-acre location on the shores of Lake Michigan. The Racine Zoological Society (RZS) was incorporated in 1924 as a financial support organization for the Zoo.
Every day the Racine Zoo saves animals and creates lifelong memories that inspire people to conserve the natural world. Every gift, large or small, helps the zoo build a better community — your community. Thank you for investing in a more sustainable future for wildlife. With out you, there is no zoo!
