Press Room

Thank you for choosing the San Antonio Zoo as a site for your venture! Our public relations staff welcomes the opportunity to assist credentialed electronic and print journalists with stories and editorial coverage of the San Antonio Zoo.

Please keep in mind:

We want to help make your story a great one; however, guidelines and limitations may occasionally be set by the staff of the San Antonio Zoo, including keepers, curators and veterinarians, as well as the Public Relations department, to ensure the safety of our animals and Zoo guests.

All interviews with Zoo employees will be arranged through the Public Relations department.

Reporters and photographers are allowed in visitor-approved areas and public pathways. We want your visit to be a memorable one; therefore, special permission from the Public Relations department is required to enter Zoo exhibits and off-exhibit areas.

The San Antonio Zoo’s news media admission policy enables working media to become familiar with the Zoo’s various feature opportunities. We will consider requests on a case-by-case basis based upon the relevancy of each applicant’s news outlet and market. This courtesy is extended to active members of the news media only (reporters, producers, editors), not retired personnel. Please email your request to

Please note that 72 business hours advance notice is required.
