The Dakota Zoo is situated within Sertoma Park along the shores of the Missouri River. The zoo opened in 1961 and has since expanded to 125 species of birds and mammals, with over 100,000 visitors each year. The Dakota Zoo once had the largest Kodiak bears in captivity. The bear, Clyde, passed away in 1987, however still has a strong presence within the zoo, including a life-size carving of Clyde carved by local resident Dave Ely.
