According to Zoos and Aquariums of America, there are at least 355 zoos in the United States, with over 2,800 zoos (and aquariums) in the world.
There are 221 American zoos and aquariums accredited by the Association of Zoos and Aquariums. 33 of these are aquariums, leaving a total of 198 true zoos. Although AZA accreditation is the national standard, it is estimated that there are at least 100 more zoos in America operating without AZA accreditation, bringing the full total to approximately 300. Wikipedia lists 278 zoos in America as of Feb. 2010.
