Point Defiance Zoo & Aquarium

Tacoma, Washington

A division of Metro Parks, Tacoma, Point Defiance is the Pacific Northwest’s only combined zoo & aquarium, promoting responsible stewardship of the world’s resources through education, conservation, research and recreational opportunities. The partnership between Wildlife Trading Company and Point Defiance Zoo & Aquarium was formed early in 2012, with plans for the introduction of a new retail experience that includes a completely new store design, expanded shopping space and an improved traffic pattern. Roughly 680,000 people visit the Zoo each year.
