Since our opening in 2005, we have provided more than 24 million guests the opportunity to experience animals from all over the globe right here in Atlanta.

Today we are celebrating World Rivers Day! This international holiday has been celebrated since 2005, with more than 60 countries and millions of people participating each year.
