Audubon Zoo and Audubon Aquarium are finalists for the USA Today Readers' Choice Best Zoo and Best Aquarium awards!

Audubon Zoo and Audubon Aquarium of the Americas are finalists for the USA Today Readers' Choice Best Zoo and Best Aquarium awards.  

You can help Audubon Zoo by voting HERE and Audubon Aquarium by voting HERE. Participants are allowed to vote once per day until 10 a.m. on March 27. The winners will be announced March 31.

The nominees, all accredited by the Association of Zoos and Aquariums (AZA), were "hand-picked by a panel of zoo and family travel experts."  

What makes a Zoo and Aquarium “America’s Favorite?” USA Today says:

“The nation’s best zoological facilities ensure animal care, welfare and enrichment come first, while still facilitating meaningful animal encounters with the public to help support wildlife and the wild places of the world.”

"There's something undeniably captivating about the world beneath the surface of the water, where colorful and sometimes bizarre life forms survive in seascapes vastly unfamiliar to our terrestrial senses. Aquariums make these marine worlds more accessible by showcasing aquatic plants and animals, educating visitors on the vital importance of these unique habitats and helping to conserve and protect our planet's waters."
