Wildlife World’s keepers and veterinarians have raised dozens of species of wild and endangered animals over the past quarter century. Wildlife World strives to maximize genetic diversity in the zoological population with their breeding programs. Wildlife World looks forward to continuing to inspire the community to conserve and protect wildlife in wild places as they have done the past 35 years.


So many things to do!

Australian Boat Ride

Cruise “Down Under” to see hopping red and gray kangaroos, an albino wallaby, plus the world’s second-largest bird, the flightless emu. And, if you are lucky, you could even hear the loud call of the laughing kookaburra.



Discover the wonders of life in the water with our four-building aquarium, filled with hundreds of fish, amphibians, invertebrates, and reptiles. Our aquarium’s South Pacific Reef tunnel tank also features the longest acrylic tunnel in Arizona. Get as up close and personal with the world’s water life as possible without getting wet by visiting The Wildlife World Aquarium!

Diversity of Life in Water

Our first building exemplifies the diversity of life in the world’s water ways and oceans with fish, amphibians, and reptiles from the Caribbean, South Pacific, Amazon, and many more distant and exotic locales.

Big Cats

The Wildlife World Zoo is home to ALL of the big cats in the wild kingdom, as well as some smaller ones too! You can visit cheetahs, jaguars (spotted and black), leopards, lions, tigers, white tigers, servals and ocelots.


Flume Ride

The all new Log Flume Ride surrounds three primate islands and takes riders past aquatic animals and through the Aquarium’s south pacific reef tunnel tank – the longest acrylic tunnel in Arizona – before splashing down three stories!
