In 1896, a small, orphaned black bear named Billy Bryan became the first resident of Denver Zoo. A gift to the mayor of Denver, Billy's adventurous and sometimes mischievous spirit helped mold the Zoo into what it is today

Denver Zoological Foundation

A cooperative agreement between the city and county of Denver and the Denver Zoological Foundation in the 1950s changed the face of the Zoo forever. Through the help of generous donors and support from the six-county Denver metro area's cultural tax, Denver Zoo has evolved into an impressive 80-acre wonderland in Denver's beautiful City Park.
