San Diego Zoo History

San Diego Zoo was founded in 1916 in Balboa Park, San Diego, California. After numerous wild animals were abandoned at the 1915 Panama California Exposition, the Zoological Society of San Diego took charge of the animals. In 1921, a permanent part of Balboa Park was set aside for the zoo. The City of San Diego and the Zoological Society made an agreement that the city would own the land, but the zoo would be operated by the Zoological Society.

Today, the San Diego Zoo has almost 4,000 animals and 650 species. The park sits on 100 acres and operates as a non-profit organization. The Zoological Association is one of the largest in the world, with nearly 500,000 members. The zoo is very active in breeding endangered animals, including the panda.

The zoo has had more than a few escape artists, however, including a koala named Mundu who hopped to a neighboring tree outside the park, two striped hyenas who escaped inside the park, and an orangutan named Hairy Houdini by the public, who escaped several times during his lifetime.

Dear Director Scott:

I want to thank you for the efficiency and kindness of zoo employees Bruce Habercom (of retail) and Hans Degnar (security). Last month on April 28, I visited the zoo and misplaced my car. Bruce overheard me call AAA and offered to help, even including a bottle of water because of the heat! He called security and Hans drove me around to look for my car, which I found after having walked around the parking lot for an hour. (Yes, I noted the animal designation, but I oouldn’t identify what it was—a meerkat.)

Thank you for having such caring people work at the zoo. It really was the best experience I’ve had with customer service, despite my having been a member for over 20 years. I’m sure this pleasant interaction was in no small part due to your leadership, and I am very grateful.

Please commend Bruce and Hans for their kindness to me.

Sincerely yours,

Myra Harada
