It is the mission of Capron Park Zoo to contribute to the preservation of species and ensure their survival for future generations through humane animal husbandry, education, captive breeding, and contributions to research.
For over half a century, the Capron Park Zoo has been a premiere recreational attraction in southern New England. We are proud to provide the public with educational programs and recreational activities dedicated to the understanding of animals from all over the world.
It is our goal to reach our visitors with the values of animal conservation, ecology awareness, and appreciation of all living things. We hope that our efforts will increase everyone's awareness and sensitivity in our community and beyond.
