The Honolulu Zoo is a 42-acre zoo located in Queen Kapiolani Park in Honolulu, Hawaii. It was first opened in 1876, making it one of the oldest zoos in the United States. The zoo is home to over 900 animals representing over 300 different species, including many native Hawaiian species such as the Hawaiian monk seal, the Hawaiian goose, and the Nene, which is the state bird of Hawaii.

The Honolulu Zoo is open daily from 9:00am to 4:30pm, with the last admission at 4:00pm. Admission prices vary depending on age and residency, with discounts available for Hawaii residents and military personnel. The zoo also offers a variety of educational programs, including animal encounters, guided tours, and summer camps for children.

In recent years, the Honolulu Zoo has faced financial difficulties and management issues, leading to concerns about the welfare of the animals and the future of the zoo. However, efforts are underway to improve the zoo’s facilities and operations, and many visitors still enjoy the opportunity to see and learn about the diverse array of animals housed there.
