Give Local 757!

Zoo supporters we need your help!

On Tuesday, May 3, the Virginia Zoo is participating in Give Local 757! and we have 24 hours to raise funds. Please consider donating or participating in one of the activities below to help us reach our goal and win additional cash prizes!

All funds raised in this one day will go to “Defining Moments,” the $2.6-million capital campaign for the renovation of the Zoo’s reptile house, World of Reptiles.gator
