With our symbolic adoption program, your students can become a “Zoo Parents,”  contributing directly toward one of the Zoos’ animal’s care and feeding for one year. Plus, this experience provides a unique experience that children of all ages will enjoy.

Every animal at the Virginia Zoo is available for adoption at several donation levels, starting at just $25.
