ABQ BioPark Zoo

Albuquerque, NM 87102


As of 2014, 2,464 animals and 2,104 plants around the world are labeled as "critically endangered." These species face a high risk of extinction in the wild. For more than 40 years, the Endangered Species Act has worked to protect animals and plants from extinction and helped put those species on the path to recovery.

Learn what the ABQ BioPark is doing to help keep species off the extinction list and what you can do to help. Discovery stations set up at the Zoo will focus on a different endangered animal each day.

Discovery stations will be set up at a different animal habitat each day:

Monday, May 14: African painted dog
Tuesday, May 15: Wattled crane
Wednesday, May 16: Komodo dragon                             
Thursday, May 17: Asian elephants
Friday, May 18: Malayan tigers  
Keeper chats will occur at 11 a.m. each day.
