While the Zoo has reopened to the public, we are still working to recover the significant financial loss we faced while the Zoo was closed from March 16 through June 4. As a nonprofit organization, we rely on visitor admission to sustain our mission.

Please consider giving to our Emergency Operating Fund to support the Zoo and its 7,000 animal residents at this time.
