What Does My Money Support?

At Woodland Park Zoo, our commitment to continued growth and development as one of the world’s finest zoos is grounded in our three pillars of animal care, education and conservation. All of the funds raised during Jungle Party aid the zoo in this mission. Your support goes towards: 

  • Maintaining and raising the level of excellence in animal care and exhibit design including the care of our nearly 1,200 exhibited animals representing nearly 300 different species.
  • Opening up new worlds of learning for people of all ages and interests year-round through education and outreach programs. This includes student programs on zoo grounds and in classrooms, strategic partnerships and educator professional development offerings.
  • Ensuring Woodland Park Zoo continues to make a difference in the survival of threatened and endangered species in Washington and around the world.

2017 Fund-Our Future

Urban Excursions For All

Our ambassador animals, paired with rich, educational experiences, create profound emotional connections that build empathy and powerful actions for wildlife conservation. Whether it’s meeting Annabelle the pot-bellied pig at the new Wildlife Theater or Gunnar the red-tailed hawk in a local library, our incredible ambassador animals enrich the lives of every generation.

To ensure access to experiences like these are available to all, Woodland Park Zoo partners with more than 600 eligible nonprofits, state and local government entities, and indigenous community organizations to welcome more than 80,000 people annually through a no-cost admission program and brings ambassador animal outreach programming to nearly 10,000 children and seniors each year. Jungle Party 2017 contributions will support creating more access to zoo experiences, connecting thousands more people with nature each year. Your support invests heavily in making possible Urban Excursions for All!
