After all, where else in our community can you meet so many animals, while knowing that your support saves their counterparts in the wild?
What Your Gift Could Do
Help care for our animals…
31-year-old Bornean orangutan Pumpkin is a recent arrival to the Zoo. Your gift supporting our animal care program could provide him with enrichment treats like avocados and iced tea pops.
…save their counterparts in the wild…
Newborn Baird’s tapir Antonio is growing up safe, but his species is endangered due to habitat loss. Your gift to save animals in the wild could help buy field supplies for our tapir conservation partners in South America.
...and inspire a new generation of wildlife heroes.
No trip to the Zoo is complete without a stop to see our ring-tailed lemurs! Your gift supporting education programs could award field trip scholarships to students so they can meet this father and daughter pair, Tango and Tully.
When you make a gift to the Houston Zoo Fund, you support the Houston Zoo’s core programs:
Animal Care and Enrichment – The Houston Zoo is home to more than 6,000 animals representing over 800 different species from around the world. Our animals receive the best in veterinary care, nutritious meals and plenty of enriching activities.
Saving Animals in the Wild – In addition to building appreciation for wildlife around the world, the Zoo participates in many regional and international conservation programs that are bringing animal species back from the brink of extinction.
Education – The Houston Zoo provides numerous education programs to individuals of all ages in an effort to communicate the importance of caring for all animals and to ignite a passion for learning and conservation.
