The Sequoia Park Zoo is a zoo located in Eureka, California, operated by the City of Eureka.[1] The Zoo is part of a larger park complex including 60-acre (24 ha) of mature second-growth coast redwood forest, Eureka's largest public playground, and a duck pond, in addition to meticulously kept formal and natural gardens. The gardens include many varieties of rhododendron bushes. The zoo's mission is "to inspire wonder, understanding and respect for the natural world by providing fun, rewarding, educational experiences that encourage meaningful connections between animals, humans, and our environment".[3] The zoo is open to the public daily, except in winter when it is closed on Mondays. The zoo houses over 250 animals representing 75 different species on 7-acre (2.8 ha).

History[edit]

Sequoia Park Zoo was founded in 1907 and is the oldest zoo in California.[citation needed] Since then, the zoo has housed an array of animals including baboons, African lions, camels, chimpanzees, tigers, polar bears, bison and other large hoof-stock, exotic birds, and small mammals. The zoo achieved accreditation from the Association of Zoos and Aquariums (AZA) in 1995.[2] Since accreditation the zoo has prioritized conservation, including Species Survival Plan breeding programs and education programs. After 100 years of free entry, the zoo started charging admission in the summer of 2008. The zoo is partially supported by a foundation which operates a gift shop, cafe and zoo facility for rentals in addition to fundraising and community outreach.

Collection[edit]

The zoo exhibits cotton-top tamarins, brown-headed spider monkeys, and white handed gibbons. The zoo used to exhibit chimpanzees, one of which lived for fifty-years at the zoo, dying at age 62. He was the oldest male chimpanzee ever recorded.[4][5][dead link]

The zoo's Barnyard is an educational exhibit that teaches about where food comes from and interact with domesticated animals including: goats, sheep, chickens, red junglefowl, rabbits, llamas, alpacas, donkeys, and a cat. Non-interactive exhibits include mice, opossums, a beehive and spiders. Birds in the walk-in free-flight aviary include the sacred ibis, scarlet ibis, European roller, green heron, Guira cuckoos, Nicobar pigeons, African grey parrot, California quail, and golden pheasants.

Sequoia Park Zoo's educational building is named "Secrets of the Forest", which features the animals and organisms in the redwood forest. A number of insects, reptiles and amphibians species exhibited in the Secrets of the Forest building.

More exotic animals include Crested Screamers, Patagonian Maras (cavies), Orinoco geese, flamingos, bush dogs, red pandas, Indian muntjac, yaks, Chacoan peccaries, and rheas.
