Zoos, zoological parks, or zoological gardens are building complexes built for the purpose of keeping menageries of animals.
How to map
If high resolution imagery is available, or you have walked around the perimeter of the zoo and have a suitable GPX trace, draw the outline of the entire zoo and add the tags to the way. If not, create a node at the centre of the zoo. In either case, the main tag to use is tourism=zoo.
Consider mapping any car parks, paths, buildings and amenities such as gift shops, restaurants and cafes.
