Making strides together



You’re driving us toward a better tomorrow for our planet

Nearly 100,000 supporters have generously donated more than $90 million to Forests for All, our 7-year, $110 million campaign to elevate our zoo like never before.

Their gifts have moved us closer to a bright future where plants, animals and people flourish together.

They’ve helped transform the Living Northwest Trail, increase our sustainability, enhance animal well-being, expand access and inclusion programs, and so much more. We’ve built strong momentum toward our goal, but we have much to do before we can declare victory.

Join us as we complete our vision for Forests for All—for our zoo, for our community, for the Puget Sound region, and far beyond. With your support, we will elevate our inclusive and extraordinary zoo experience—and become a premier center for conservation action.
