Zoo Knoxville is a 53-acre (21 ha) zoo located in East Tennessee and opens 365 days a year. The Zoo was founded as the Knoxville Zoological Gardens in 1931 and has been accredited by the Association of Zoos and Aquariums (AZA) since 1978. In 1984, Kevin Wilson and his wife, Jacquie Wilson, became the park's founders when they began their animals with more than 30 individual animals including bobcats and ocelots, as well as a bald eagle to display. Zoo Knoxville has two halves, the East Zoo and West Zoo. One area of the zoo is primarily naturalistic and features large outdoor habitats for many animals. A second section of the zoo has no less than two indoor exhibits, which allow visitors to see animals in their native environments.
