Los Angeles Zoo Reopens Saturday September 19

The Los Angeles Zoo will safely reopen to the public on Saturday, Sept. 19, after closing it's gates on Sept. 13 due to the unhealthy air quality caused by the local Bobcat and El Dorado wildfires. The Zoo continues to monitor air quality advisories issued by the South Coast Air Quality Management District and adhere to air quality safety guidance.

Any guest who purchased tickets for dates the Zoo was closed may reschedule their tickets for a different date and time in the future by emailing Members with reservations for dates the Zoo was closed may request a new reservation date at

Animal care staff will continue to monitor the animals who reside in outdoor habitats. Based on past fire events in the Los Angeles area, we do not anticipate any air quality issues to affect our animals. However, in the event the air quality begins to affect our animals, our animal care and veterinary health staff are prepared to respond as necessary.
