WHEN WE EVOLVE, THEY THRIVE.

Thanks to the incredible generosity of the Zoo community, we have reached our BIG goal of $160,000,000 earlier than anticipated and are transforming our Zoo for the next generation of wildlife and visitors.

Even with a pause in active fundraising for most of 2020 due to the pandemic, we have achieved our ambitious goal, two years ahead of schedule.

We could not have done it without the generous leadership challenge gift of $50 million from humanitarians Linda and Harry Fath, or the tens of thousands of small and large gifts, including many of $100,000 and up.
