Donate to the Zoo
A gift to the Zoo supports the continued growth and leadership of the Zoo for generations to come — connecting our children, grandchildren and the young at heart to nature and inspiring them to become stewards of Israel’s unique natural environment. Your gift to the Zoo supports daily operations and special projects such as:
The Zoo provides superior care to over 1,000 animals 365 days a year. Animal care includes serving customized meals to meet the natural nutritional needs of 252 species and providing on-site wellness and critical care in our veterinary hospital and lab. With the support of our members and donors, the Zoo’s staff can respond quickly to emerging animal needs.
Education and Learning
By engaging children, youth and adults through a variety of educational programs and providing life-changing volunteer experiences, the Zoo team facilitates scientific exploration for learners of all ages.
Each year, we welcome visitors from all sections of Jerusalem’s diverse population and educate residents through outreach programs, creating opportunities for everyone to make connections to the living world and be inspired to make a difference.
Conservation and Research
The Zoo is recognized as a trailblazer in the field of conservation and research. Through public awareness campaigns, breeding and reintroduction programs and cutting edge research, the Zoo works to protect animals and ecosystems in Israel and worldwide.
Your charitable support enables us to continue and expand our work in these critical areas. The Zoo’s commitment to maintaining animal care, visitor education, community access, wildlife conservation and environmental sustainability has a meaningful and lasting impact in our community, our environment and our world. Please join us in these efforts!
Your help is particularly important because we do not receive any government or municipal operational subsidies and are entirely reliant on ticket sales for operational costs, and upon donations for new conservation projects, exhibits and education programs.
