Go to any major city's downtown area and you'll find one spot that seems to give the whole place its power. It's electricity. In Phoenix, that place is Arizona Center. It's the center of it all. The center of dining, the center of shopping and above all, the center of attention. Arizona Center is where Phoenix comes to life.
Wildlife World Zoo has Arizona's largest collection of exotic animals, totaling more than 1,300 individual animals. Wildlife World Zoo is accredited by the American Zoo and Aquarium Association. It is one of a few nationally accredited privately owned zoos in the United States.
One satisfied zoo member comments: "If you want to see animals up close, this is the zoo for you. You won't find concrete sidewalks here, you are surrounded by nature. This place is a safe haven for animals, a present day Noah's ark."
