Sierra Safari Zoo

Reno, NV 89506

Though small it has become the largest zoo in Nevada, with over two-hundred animals of over forty different species. The zoo educates and entertains young and old alike. Some unusual animals reside at the zoo, Sloths, Lemurs, Zebras, Camels, Cavies, and Leopards. The zoo boasts six kinds of monkeys and eight kinds of wild cat including Lions and Tigers. “My dream was to bring the animals I loved together with the children of the area to promote empathy for animals everywhere. I had no idea what even the running of a small facility would entail.” says Dale McDaniel co-founder of the zoo. The zoo is run by over fifty animal loving volunteers. The sheriff’s community work program also helps in running day to day operations.
