Denver Zoo Celebrates 2 Million Visitors in 2015


Denver Zoo in Colorado has announced near record-breaking figures for attendance in 2015.

Denver Zoo Celebrates 2 Million Visitors in 2015The number of visitors and participants in the zoo’s many outreach education programmes totals 2, 037, 036, the second-highest in the zoo’s 119-year history.

The zoo puts last year’s success down to its first travelling exhibit, “Nature Connects, Art with LEGO® Bricks” featuring life-size sculptures of animals and plants created from LEGO bricks, and the popularity of the Toyota-sponsored Giraffe Encounter which enabled visitors to feed the giraffes.

The last time Denver Zoo broke the 2 million barrier was in 2012 when visitors poured in to see Toyota Elephant Passage.

The Denver zoo, home to 4, 300 animals representing more than 600 species, is acknowledged as the most eco-friendly in the United States. Since 1996 it has been active in numerous conservation projects all over the world.
