Our Mission

Our Mission

Roger Williams Park Zoo strives to engage guests in an extraordinary and unique educational experience to improve their understanding of and appreciation for the natural world.  We contribute significantly to the conservation of our earth’s animals, plants and other natural resources by challenging ourselves and our audience to act as responsible environmental stewards.

Roger Williams Park Zoo is supported and managed by the Rhode Island Zoological Society and is owned by the City of Providence.
