Give Local 757 a 24-hour event to help raise funds for non-profit organizations in need, like the Virginia Zoo. The unprecedented closure due to COVID-19 will have a significant impact on the Virginia Zoo’s operations, especially education programs. The robust lineup, like summer camp, the Zoo’s Conservation Youth Team, classroom outreaches, Snoozes and other family favorites are an integral part of our mission by educating the community about our world and its animals.

To help replace funds normally generated through our wonderful educational opportunities, we are asking for your help. Please consider donating to support education programs at the Virginia Zoo. Just like our animals, anything big or small can have an impact.
