Your support is more important than ever



Woodland Park Zoo depends on zoo visitors, events and programs to help fund our animal care teams, educational experiences and conservation work. With our gates closed, our critical earned revenue that helps fund our people and mission has come to a halt.

Your zoo manages the largest number of live animals in Washington state, with nearly 1,000 animals, and has served as a community anchor and beacon of hope for more than a century. All of our animals, large and small, are waiting out the pandemic like the rest of us, and being cared for by our amazingly dedicated animal care and veterinary teams.

Your gift today will enable us to continue providing the best possible care for all of our animals, each and every day, and to connect with our community until we can open our gates once more.

Your support is more important than ever to keep our vital work going. Gifts of any size make a difference and every dollar counts; no gift is too small.

Thank you for supporting your community zoo in this time of need.
