(July 29, 2021) Masks are required in all indoor spaces, regardless of vaccination status, as per the State of California and Santa Barbara County Public Health.

For the safety of the animals, masks are still required for giraffe feeding and other encounters involving mammals.

Timed ticketing will remain in effect until further notice. This provides for a better guest experience in the park and allows the Zoo to slowly increase capacity safely as California reopens.

Please see the Zoo’s homepage for a current update on COVID-19 regulations and admissions information.
