We need your help to recover from when COVID-19 forced us to close our gates for two months. We’re raising funds to help us feed and care for over 2,000 animals and over 1,000 plant species through a ZOO-A-THON this September.
How can you help? Create your own commercial to garner support for YOUR Zoo through our ZOO-A-THON Video Contest.
The contest winner will have their commercial aired on television and make an appearance during our live ZOO-A-THON to be awarded a one-year (Single Adult Family or Family) Zoo Membership!
