The Dakota Zoo's history began on a farm owned by Marc and Betty Christianson in Bismarck, North Dakota. At first, the Christansons exclusively took care of domestic animals and used to raise mink for profit. Little by little, their love for animals became known and the farm's popularity increased so that the idea of a zoo came up. The Dakota Zoo opened in 1961 with 98 animals in total. The zoo kept extending ever since. Today, it features more than 600 animals representing over 125 species, each with its own unique set of care requirements.
