Do we allow production crews at our properties? Of course we do! As a nonprofit organization, we rely on images and video of our animal and plant collections to support our worldwide conservation efforts. Each production request is considered on a case-by-case basis, and a fee to shoot stills or video/film will apply. Please note the terms of use are governed by a signed Location Agreement.

Otis is a star! Our big hippo man makes a cameo appearance in this USPS® commercial filmed at the San Diego Zoo, reinforcing that Zoos foster a lifelong appreciation for wildlife.
