How far will YOUR donation go?

  Food Enrichment Habitat
$25 Provide a full week of produce for Patience, our Linne's two-toed sloth. Ensure each Animal Ambassador has their own puzzle feeder. Support staff and supplies needed to clean and improve enclosures daily!
$50 Serve up a week of fresh fruit to our bats! Provide one Boomer Ball. These tough toys are the paws-down favorite for our otters -- but they go through them quickly! Brooms, towels, and other cleaning supplies need to be replaced regularly.
$100 Zoo animals need special diets! Provide frozen meat for our carnivores for one month. Even in zoos, animals need rest and privacy! This level provides a shelter in one resident's habitat. Purchase a case of disinfectant! Keeping our animals safe and healthy means having the right materials at hand.
$250 Provide a YEAR'S supply of snacks for our herbivore animals. Crickets are both food and enrichment for many animals. Provide SIX months of snacks! Meerkats love to dig away at sand in their enclosure, and this giving level provides a year's supply.
$500 Happy, healthy starfish eat a LOT of mussels, and this level ensures a full year's supply! Curious mammals and birds need LOTS of enrichment! Give our staff the time and flexibility to create new games daily for them to explore. Support nap time in the zoo! Purchase one year's supply of bedding and hay.
$1000 Our otters eat NINE fish per DAY! This gift will keep them satisfied for SIX months. Hammocks and custom climbing structures made from fire hoses are durable and provide hours of enjoyment. Help us create new ones with a gift at this level. Outfitting animal enclosures with full-spectrum bulbs helps keep animals healthy! Each bulb must be replaced annually, and can cost up to $1000.
