Building Beyond

The Tulsa Zoo is paving a path toward greatness.

After privatizing on January 1, 2011, Tulsa Zoo Management, Inc. (TZMI) has made great strides in securing the zoo’s future. As part of the Tulsa Zoo’s transition from city governance to a public-private partnership, a 20-year Master Plan was commissioned to build the world class exhibits our community and animals deserve, as well as address the backlog of deferred maintenance that is the result of being an 86-year-old facility.

With this 20-year Master Plan, TZMI will be able to achieve our vision of becoming a premier recreation, education and conservation-focused organization. For more information, visit
