Introducing the National Mammal

April 29, 2016

We did it! Thanks to your help, the American bison is officially the US #NationalMammal. As an integral part of our country's history and culture, it's a well deserved title. Plan a trip to the zoo to visit our herd that have been a part of this ongoing conservation success story.

Thank President Obama and Congress for choosing bison as the #NationalMammal.
