Emergency Operating Fund

As a global community, we are facing a time of unprecedented public health challenges and economic uncertainties. Animals are at the heart of everything we do and their health is our top priority so we are taking every precaution to safeguard all of our unique animal residents, their Zoo Keepers and the rest of our staff.

This closure will have a significant financial impact on the Virginia Zoo. To help replace funds normally generated through ticket sales, memberships and events we are asking for your help. Support our mission by making a donation so we can continue the critical work we do while we are closed and be here for you when we reopen.

Other ways to give.

In lieu of requesting a refund, the public can also show its support by converting fees paid for purchased group tours, experiences, programs and events to a donation.
