Comments / picturesThe Audubon Zoo is a zoo located in New Orleans and is part of the Audubon Nature Institute which also manages the Aquarium of the Americas. The zoo covers 58 acres (230,000 m²) and is home to 2,000 animals. The zoo is located in a section of Audubon Park in Uptown New Orleans, on the Mississippi River side of Magazine Street. The zoo is named in honor of artist and naturalist John James Audubon who lived in New Orleans starting in 1821.

Some of the exhibits at the zoo include gorillas, orangutans, and the Louisiana swamp exhibit. The zoo is also home to two White tigers and rare white alligators.

While there had been animal exhibits on and around this site for the World Cotton Centennial Exhibition 1884 World's Fair, the origins of the current zoo are found in the early 20th century. A flight cage has been in the park since 1914. In the boom of the 1920s many additions were made; the sea lion pool with neo-classical columns from 1928 can still be seen today, as can a few art nouveau buildings later used as a reptile exhibit.
