Oklahoma Zoo Safari USA is an Oklahoma Teaching Zoo and Oklahoma Zoological Park providing an education about animals and wildlife conservation. Oklahoma Zoo Safari USA is located in a beautiful valley in rural Northeast Oklahoma, south of the small town of Locust Grove. It is a unique Oklahoma Zoological Park that is committed to providing an educational experience to visitors young and old alike. Oklahoma Zoo Safari USA’s mission is to provide an educational experience to visitors and to provide an awareness of the animals and plants in which we share our world, and to show a commitment to the future through the continuing development of this facility and to provide a unique vision for all.

Oklahoma Zoo Safari USA is a non-profit organization that runs exclusively on donations and is a fully-functioning Oklahoma Zoo which concentrates on smaller animals that are not seen on a regular basis. Oklahoma Zoo Safari USA is also an Oklahoma Teaching Zoo, helping others to convey and understand the message of Wildlife Conservation.

Oklahoma Zoo Safari USA’s mission: To raise community consciousness toward to the welfare of animals and to provide public education in the care and welfare of animals, to promote community involvement; to provide internship for students in all animal related studies and sciences, and to eventually offer scholarships for students studying animal sciences.

It is Oklahoma Zoo Safari USA’s lecture and presentation season. Our team will travel throughout eastern Oklahoma and northeast Arkansas to lecture to children and adults about Zoo Safari USA and the animals we share our world with.

So for the teachers and other educators, now is the time to schedule an appointment for your classroom or the entire school, and please give us at least a minimum of two weeks notice to schedule. Please call 1-918-386-2203 to schedule.




Over the years the staff of Zoo Safari USA have asked ourselves, “Have we made an impact with our educational programs”, the answer is yes.

On January 1, 2016  a young man informed Director, Maria Jinks, that because of Zoo Safari USA coming to the classroom he has gone on to college and is studying to become an Environmental Conservationist. His goal is to work for the state of Oklahoma and study bats.

Zoo Safari USA is dedicated to educating and inspiring children about the natural world, not just in Oklahoma or the United States but around the world.

By donating just $5.00 dollars you can help Zoo Safari USA continue its goal of educating and inspiring children about the natural world and its wildlife.

When you donate, you make a difference!



Over the last 25 years we have educated people from ages 7 years to 77+ years. Each time we visit a assisted living facility, school, daycare, birthday parties or special events it is always exciting for us and for those we meet and educate. For us to see a child’s face light up when Cooper the Fennec Fox is brought out, or when they get to hold Rosie the Red Tail Boa and their smile gets so big it fills the room, it brings such joy to our hearts.

Our mission is not just to go out to schools, daycare’s, and special events, but to have Zoo Safari USA become a teaching zoo. Where we can educate students on the day to day operations of a zoo, taking care of the needs of different species of animals, educating visitors, exhibit design and school lectures.





With your donation we can continue our mission and move forward. So Please donate today, every dollar counts.

  “It is not just that animals make the world more scenic or picturesque.  The lives of animals are woven into our very being – closer than our own breathing – and our soul will suffer when they are gone.”
