Wegeforth Bowl Show at the San Diego Zoo

Filed under: San Diego Zoo — Tags: , — washaw @ 6:00 am

The San Diego Zoo in Balboa Park, San Diego, California is one of the largest zoos in the world with over 4,000 animals of more than 800 species. It is privately operated by the nonprofit Zoological Society of San Diego on 100 acres of parkland leased from the City of San Diego, and ownership of all animals, equipment and other assets rests with the City of San Diego.

Dr. Harry Wegeforth founded the Zoological Society of San Diego, meeting October 2, 1916. The San Diego Zoo grew out of exotic animal exhibitions abandoned after the 1915 Panama-California Exposition.

Shows at the Wegeforth Bowl are free with admission.
