Director’s Circle

Make a Difference.  Join the Pride.

The Jacksonville Zoo and Gardens takes great pride in the commitment of our supporters.  The Zoo now features over 1,500 animals, beautiful gardens, and a growing number of attractions, including the new Wildlife Carousel.  None of this would be possible without the support of our Director’s Circle Members, a group of distinguished donors that support the Zoo with a higher level of membership.

A membership to the Zoo supports general operations, the care and feeding of our animals, and continuing educational efforts.  Your Membership in the Director’s Circle allows us to go one step further in our efforts to expand, educate and conserve endangered species while giving you more benefits and additional privileges to your membership.  By joining the Director’s Circle, you are joining a very special group of supporters.  Take advantage and become part of the pride.
