Lion Month at Oakland Zoo

Mountain lions in the United States are faced with numerous threats including trophy hunting, habitat loss and degradation, vehicle collisions, and much more. In California, mountain lions can be killed for attacking pets, livestock and hobby animals. While at the zoo, we will be sharing some tips and tricks for coexisting with these native predators!

While you're at the zoo, stop by our exhibit. We will be featuring a predator-proof livestock pen that can be used to protect your animals, keeping both them and mountain lions safe!

Admission is to the event itself is free. The only cost will be for admission into the zoo.

While you're there, be sure to stop by the new mountain lion exhibit which features three cubs that were recently rescued by California Department of Fish and Wildlife. The cubs, who now call Oakland Zoo home, have their own, brand-new habitat, which is also the most expansive mountain lion exhibit in the world!
