Join us for Zoo Day on June 9!

What’s as much fun as seeing people turn into rhinoceroses on the A.C.T. stage? Seeing real life rhinoceroses at the San Francisco Zoo and Gardens!

The Zoo is celebrating its 90th anniversary this year, and is proud to commemorate 9 decades of fulfilling its mission to connect people with wildlife, inspire caring for nature, and advancing conservation action.

Rhinos have been an integral part of the Zoo since Stonewall, an Eastern Black Rhino, arrived in 1956. Thirty-four rhinos have called the Zoo home since then, and today, you can see 24-year old, 6,000 pound Asian one-horned rhino Gauhati play with his massive soccer ball, or 11-year old African black rhino Boone enjoy his daily enrichment treats.

Enjoy Rhinoceros at A.C.T.’s SF Zoo Day on June 9, and stop by our lobby display to learn why rhino skin folds into “plates,” why poachers hunt them under the mistaken belief that rhino horns have medical powers, and what you can do to help save this magnificent and highly endangered animal. Then come to the Zoo and see our real life ambassador rhinos for yourself!
