About Connecticut's Beardsley Zoo

Connecticut's Beardsley Zoo has a proud history of over 80 years as Connecticut’s only zoo. As an accredited
member of the Association of Zoos and  Aquariums (AZA) and participant in its Species Survival Plan (SSP) programs, we are committed to the preservation of endangered animals and are actively developing strategies that will protect species and preserve their wild habitats. Through education, conservation, research and recreation, Connecticut's Beardsley Zoo provides a wonderfully wild experience for students and families.
