The Grow Wild Society is at the forefront of the evolution of the Zoo. It was formed to develop, enhance, and grow a new base of support for the Pittsburgh Zoo & Aquarium; to cultivate and engage donors; and to help advance the Zoo’s mission of caring for the animals we exhibit while ensuring the future of wildlife worldwide.

Your membership in the Grow Wild Society will give you a close partnership with the Zoo while supporting our vital mission and current programs. The Grow Wild Society encourages all members to become more involved with the Pittsburgh Zoo & Aquarium, in the hopes that it will lead to greater support for our animals, conservation efforts, and education programs.
