It has two facilities: a 163 acre (66 ha) zoological park in northwest Washington, DC which is open to the public, and a non-public 3200 acre (1,295 ha) Conservation and Research Center in Fort Royal, Virginia. The zoo became part of the Smithsonian in 1890. Plans for the zoo were drawn up by three men: ● William Temple Hornaday – a conservationist and head of the vertebrate division at the Smithsonian Institution ● Frederick Olmsted – the premier landscape architect of the day ● Samuel Langley – the third Secretary of the Smithsonian.
It was established in 1853 after two men approached the zoo for advice on keeping tropical fish in tanks. The Fish House contained over 300 types of fishes and marine invertebrates. Three years later, in 1856, the Division of Fishes was established at the Smithsonian’s National Museum of Natural History in the United States. The New York Aquarium was opened in 1896 and the famous Shedd Aquarium in Chicago opened in 1930.

Each organism on Earth has been assigned a scientific or Latin name.
