Brandywine ZooWilmington

Brandywine Zoo is a small 12-acre (4.9 ha) zoo that opened in 1905 in Brandywine Park in WilmingtonDelaware, United States. It is located on the banks of the Brandywine River. The zoo is managed by the Delaware Division of Parks and Recreation and supported by the Delaware Zoological Society, and is open daily weather permitting.

The Brandywine Zoo has been a member of the Association of Zoos and Aquariums (AZA) since 1981.

Today, the Brandywine Zoo covers almost 13 acres of land and has two red pandas, river otters and more.

Additionally, the Brandywine Zoo runs with the help of numerous volunteers and docents. In any given year, the zoo has about 50 to 70 community volunteers serving in the education department, physical plant programs, as general guides, and contributing professional services.

Bald eagles are once again being exhibited at the zoo, when two female eagles that were injured in the wild came to the zoo in early 2014. The zoo also exhibited red pandas for the first time beginning in the summer of 2014.

The Brandywine Zoo is part of the Delaware State Parks and is managed by the Delaware Division of Parks and Recreation with the support of the Delaware Zoological Society.

The zoo has, on average, 90,000 visitors a year.
