Located in Kapi'olani Park on the east end of Waikiki, the Honolulu Zoo is the largest zoo within a radius of 2,300 miles. It is too often overlooked by visitors.

The Honolulu Zoo is ever changing and modernizing. Beginning in the 1990's, numerous exhibits were redesigned to feature more natural settings for the animals on display. That work continues today.

Located nearby at the shoreline, the Waikiki Aquarium offers exhibits, programs, and research focus on the aquatic life of Hawaii and the tropical Pacific.

Over 3,000 organisms are on exhibit representing more than 500 species of aquatic animals and plants. The aquarium is located next to a living reef on the Waikiki shoreline.
