A Zoo for All

Community Access Program



We believe time spent with wildlife is educational, motivational and restorative. It is our goal to make such experiences possible to as many people as possible regardless of their economic circumstances.

As a reflection of the wide support that makes our world-class zoo so strong, the Community Access Program (CAP) is dedicated to making the zoo more accessible to low-income, at-risk or underserved children and families in our shared community.

In partnership with 600+ eligible nonprofits, foundations, state and local government entities, and indigenous community organizations, we work with human service providers to distribute more than 80,000 free admissions to community members annually.

Letters From the Community

I felt the need to tell someone how wonderful it has been to hand out the zoo tickets to our patients. The parents are always so grateful and the kids, so excited! Thank you so much for making it possible!

---------

Many of the children and families with whom we work would not otherwise have the means to access the zoo and we truly appreciate the opportunity to provide them with this special privilege.” 

---------

All of our clients are in transition from homelessness while they enter our program. All are low income and many are single parents with children. We greatly appreciate the opportunity to give them tickets to the zoo and they are always beyond thrilled to receive them.
