Families

Erie County Executive, Chris Collins, and Buffalo Zoo President and CEO, Donna M. Fernandes, Ph.D., have officially launched the Buffalo Zoo’s cell phone app to support cultural tourism in Buffalo!

As part of County Executive Chris Collins’ tourism initiative, the Buffalo Zoo and Odysseus Mobile Computing have collaborated to create a cell phone tour of the Buffalo Zoo.

Visitors with Iphones and Droid model cell phones can now download a Buffalo Zoo app, which enables users to easily access multimedia information about animal exhibits, event schedules, the history of the Buffalo Zoo, conservation tips and details about Zoo memberships and other visitor amenities. Using the built-in GPS technology, the app also guides visitors around the Zoo.

To reach out to the increasing number of international tourists who visit the Western New York region each year, information about the animals and visitor amenities is available in six languages, including English, Spanish, French, German, Mandarin and Japanese.
