Review

The zoo is an absolute must for any visitor to San Diego. Its also a favorite among locals. The zoo & its sister The Wild Animal Park to the north are part of a non-profit organization working to save many endangered species. Entrance fees go to fund many valuable programs.... Make sure you see the koalas at night; theyre almost never awake during the day.
