Alameda Park Zoo Mission Statement

The Alameda Park Zoo provides an aesthetically pleasing naturalistic environment, which promotes education in the environmental fields of study, conservation of local and global environments, recreation, and biological research.  The intended concept is to instill through audio, visual, and tactical means, a unity of non-human and human relationships.  Through professional cooperation and tactics, the Alameda Park Zoo will provide the public with high standards of environmental education.  This educational procedure takes place in an atmosphere that promotes environmental recreation as well as education.
