The Cincinnati Zoo & Botanical Garden (CZBG) is rated as the #1 year-round family attraction in the region. It consistently ranks as one of the top zoos in the country. More than 1.6 million guests, including 52,000+ member families, visit CZBG annually. Through wide-ranging programs founded on a diverse collection of more than 1,600 animals representing over 500 species and over 3,000 botanical specimens, the CZBG has changed a passive Zoo visit into dynamic interaction and engaging experience. As the leading non-formal science educator in southern Ohio, the Zoo reaches over 330,000 children and educators each year through educational outreach.
CZBG’s Center for Conservation and Research of Endangered Wildlife (CREW) facility is dedicated to saving endangered plants and animals such as polar bears, rhinos and cheetahs from extinction. As the Greenest Zoo in America, CZBG is committed to environmental sustainability through green building, energy efficiency, a zero-landfill focus and much more. And finally, through strategic partnerships, CZBG is committed to improving the local community socially, culturally, educationally and environmentally.

“The values of the zoo toward animal conservation.”
“I feel appreciated because we work together toward common goals and support one another in and outside of work.”
“I feel challenged regularly and have opportunities to develop my skills and grow as a person. I also believe in the work that we do and feel that my job is meaningful and has value.”
