According to their website, “The Indianapolis Zoo is… committed to sustainability — the ability of humans to provide responsible stewardship of the Earth’s limited and precious resources. The entire Zoo staff is involved with efforts to lead the way by making the Zoo itself as green as possible.” Among other programs, the zoo is partnered with the MacArthur Foundation to support a World Conservation Union project to track the effects of climate change on species and habitat.
The zoo has 64 acres that include a zoo, an aquarium, and a botanical garden. Each year, over a million visitors come to see the 2,000 animals from 250 different species as well as the over 2,000 different varieties of plants.
For adults, admission is $12.95, for children 2-12 it’s $9.95, and for seniors it’s $11.70. However, tickets can sometimes be cheaper when purchased online. More information can be found at: http://indianapoliszoo.com/SitePages/Home.aspx
