About the Zoo

Zoo-Sign.jpgCome to the Niabi Zoo and explore 40 sprawling acres, home to over 600 animals representing more than 200 species from around the world. Located just minutes from the heart of the Quad Cities in Coal Valley, Illinois, Niabi Zoo is a premier destination in the area.

Educate. Inspire. Act. Conserve.

Niabi Zoo places great emphasis on educating children and adults about the importance of conservation.  Our education center is a great place to learn about the animals that call Niabi Zoo home and serves as our classroom. Our animal habitats provide an opportunity for guests to not only see the animals, but to learn about them from Zoo Keeper Chats and Naturalists. We strive to foster care and understanding for wild animals and wild places in every visitor to Niabi Zoo. We work to provide a connection to animals and nature both at the Zoo and in our community. We educate to inspire people to take conservation action.

Our Mission: Working today to assure a better tomorrow for all living things
