Why the animals?

Every year 1.5 million visitors come face-to-face with our animal exhibits and presentations. In fact, our animal ambassadors star in over 5,000 Museum presentations each year! As educational experts, they have the extremely important job of teaching YOU all about their lives and how we, as humans, impact their habitats and well-being.

"Owl" we need is your support!

Caring for over 130 animals (that’s 50 species!) every day isn’t always easy. But your individual support goes a long way toward making sure each and every animal is provided the best care possible with the freshest food, plenty of exercise, and proper veterinary care. Your gift to the Annual Fund will help enable our animal friends to thrive and do their jobs well every single day.

How far can your gift go?

No matter what the amount, every gift counts.
