Enjoy a live look at animals that call the Kansas City Zoo home! Even when the Zoo is closed, you can keep an eye on your favorite residents.
Polar Bear Camera
Classified as a marine mammal, the polar bear is as typical of the North Pole as the penguins are of Antarctica. These huge carnivores depend on sea ice to hunt their preferred prey, seals. Climate change has severely affected the survival of polar bears who, without sustained sea ice, cannot effectively hunt their prey.
King, Gentoo, and Macaroni Penguin Camera
Helzberg Penguin Plaza is home to 17 king penguins, eight macaroni penguins, and 45 Gentoo penguins. You can see all of them swimming and strolling around in this cold-weather habitat. The Kansas City Zoo is also home to 19 Humboldt penguins that live in a separate warm-weather habitat.
One of two subspecies of orangutan, Bornean orangutans are found natively on the island of Borneo. As frugivores, their diet includes over 400 types of fruit in the wild and they are important movers of seeds, passing them through their digestive system. You can find our group of six at Orangutan Canopy.
