The Salisbury Zoological Park, commonly referred to as the Salisbury Zoo, is a 12acre zoo located on the Delmarva Peninsula in the Salisbury, Maryland city park. The Salisbury Zoo chooses to mainly house species native to North, South America, and Australia. Its collection of over 100 animals includes wallabys, American alligators, flamingos, North American river otters, ocelots, Patagonian cavys, red wolves, two-toed sloths, jaguars, llamas, turtles, macaws, rescued raptors and owls, and a spectacled or Andean bear.The Salisbury Zoo is accredited by the Association of Zoos and Aquariums (AZA), and is one of only a few AZA-accredited zoos that do not charge an entrance fee.HistoryThe zoo was founded in 1954 with the placement of some animals on permanent display in the city park. Improvements made in the 1970s resulted in the naturalistic enclosures for species native to North, Central, and South America that visitors see today.
