Notes and Information

The Point Defiance Zoo no longer houses walruses, although they remain available as a holding facility for when future need arises. Under current recommendations by the Walrus Conservation Consortium, Point Defiance will not be a breeding facility, but will instead house juveniles and other nonbreeding individuals when they become available for placement.
