Ten Great Reasons to Advertise with Zoo and Aquarium Visitor


Last year Americans made over 350 million visits to the more than 3,000 animal and wildlife attractions in the United States. These attractions vary from the large nationally known zoos, aquariums, and marine theme parks to suburban nature centers, public wildlife rehabilitation centers, aviaries, botanical gardens with birds, turtles, frogs and fish, and many others. These 3,000 attractions and the 350 million attendee figure does not include the countless county and state fairs, horse shows, livestock competitions, 4-H club events, dog, cat and bird shows, and many other animal venues. Americans love animals and visiting animal attractions.
