Make a Direct Donation
Your donation helps the Zoo to continue our mission to “provide experiences that inspire people and motivate them to care for the natural world.” Generous donations, whether it is a one-time or annual contribution, help the Zoo serve more than 1.4 million people each year, provide educational programs, continue conservation initiatives and care for more than 1,400 animals, including endangered and threatened species.
This comprehensive endeavor will provide funding to create more engaging and immersive exhibits, greatly enhancing the Zoo’s capacity to serve, educate and inspire our guests through new world class experiences.
For several species of animals and plants, survival is an increasing challenge. At the Zoo, we work to provide help wherever we can. Your donation allows us to grow and participate in numerous local, regional and international efforts on behalf of endangered species.
