The Santa Barbara Zoo is dedicated to the preservation, conservation, and enhancement of the natural world and its living treasures through education, research, and recreation.
With more than 500 animals and 146 different species of reptiles, birds and insects, the Santa Barbara Zoo is at once an educational facility and at the same time a place to go have a blast. My kids have been here and absolutely loved it. The zoologists are friendly and love to answer questions, and the shows the Zoo puts on really give you an opportunity to see the animals in all their character.
Couldn't think of many better places to donate money to.
