Oakland Zoo is a 100-acre zoo located in southeastern Oakland. Today the zoo is home to over 660 native and exotic animals and is a member of the AZA. It is relatively small for a city of Oakland's size, but contains modern exhibits. Most of its animals are kept in relatively "natural" habitats, and expanded natural habitats are planned. The zoo is nationally known for its elephant exhibit and has been praised for allowing elephants to roam freely.
