The Zoo has many important missions. To fulfil these, we rely on the support of those who share our vision and want to support the work of the Zoo.
The Zoo’s budget mainly comes from tickets sales. The generous donations of our supporters enable us to undertake special projects, build new exhibits and renovate and renew the Zoo.
You can support the Zoo and the projects that are close to your heart via the Global Giving webpage.
If you have any questions about donating to the Zoo, please contact our International Relations Manager, Rachael Risby Raz at: email@example.com
