World-Famous San Diego Zoo

You...Belong in a Zoo! - The San Diego Zoo

The world-famous San Diego Zoo, just 10 minutes from Shelter Island hotels, is a real sightseeing adventure and tour  value. Admission to the Zoo includes unlimited use of Guided Bus Tour,  Express Bus, and Skyfari Aerial Tram. See the life and animals of the  world in one afternoon, viewing rare and intriguing wildlife from nearly  every region of the globe in just one location. With more than 4,000  animals representing 800 species, it’s home to a diverse collection of  animals, many of which are rarely seen at other zoos. Winding pathways  take visitors through a 3-acre experience at the San Diego Zoo’s largest  and most elaborate animal habitat in its 90-year history. Monkey Trails  and Forest Tales, located in the Heart of the Zoo, takes guests on a  two-level excursion into Asian and African forests flourishing with some  of nature’s most imperiled wildlife.
Our world-famous pandas at the  San Diego Zoo have had the crowds abuzz ever since two of the  black-and-white bears came to visit in 1987. After years of red tape and  laborious paperwork, the Zoo and China agreed on a 12-year research  loan of two giant pandas, Bai Yun and Shi Shi. A brand-new exhibit area  was built for our panda guests, which has since been expanded and  renovated and is now called the Giant Panda Research Station.
