Beginning with the aquatic bird house, completed in 1899, work has almost never stopped, with new exhibit space being added and older ones rebuilt in this park setting. A pioneer in the concept of allowing animals to live in naturalistic replicas of their native habitats, the Wildlife Conservation Society is also a world leader in breeding endangered species. Its 252-acre site here is small compared to some other urban zoos, but its practices have had a profound effect on all of them. The Society also operates four other zoos, one in each borough, and the aquarium at Coney Island.
