The Brandywine Zoo is part of Delaware State Parks, and is Delaware's only Zoo. Accredited by the American Association of Zoos and Aquariums, the Brandywine Zoo exhibits animals primarily from the Americas and Asia. Located on 12 acres, this small zoo in the heart of Wilmington offers opportunity for students to learn and develop skills in the zoo field. The Delaware Zoological Society, a nonprofit organization, supports the Zoo and works in conjunction with State Parks to run daily operations at the Zoo. Opportunities for students range from working in our education department, marketing and development, or our animal husbandry department.
