Roger Williams Park Zoo

Roger Williams Park Zoo is supported and managed by the Rhode Island Zoological Society and is owned by the city of Providence. The zoo works to educate visitors and to conserve the earth’s animals, plants, and other natural resources. Since 2010, captive breeding specialists have been breeding New England cottontails at the zoo, to boost the numbers and genetic diversity of existing wild populations and to allow conservationists to start new cottontail populations on lands where rabbit habitat is being made.
