The Zoo Needs You

As a 501(c)3 nonprofit, the Phoenix Zoo relies on ticket sales, donations, annual memberships, fundraising events, philanthropic gifts and our community partners to support our mission of motivating and inspiring people to care for the natural world.

While we are closed to help stop the spread of novel coronavirus (COVID-19), our amazing keeper and veterinary staff are hard at work ensuring our animals get the care they need. Please consider donating to the Zoo’s Relief Fund and help us keep our operations running smoothly while we remain closed during this time.
