San Diego Zoo & Wild Animal Park Photos

The Balboa Park zoo dates from 1922 & tucks into many ravines. It is noted for pandas & koalas. In the 1970s the Zoo opened its Wild Animal Park near Escondido. Wild Animal Park is noted for work raising endangered species such as the California Condor. In the Park animals roam open spaces much like they might the plains of Africa.
