Do You Have Plans for Dinner?

Our animals do!

This year, the Zoo built a new Animal Commissary where staff will prepare diets for over 350 animals that we feed every day.  Our ‘grocery bill’ for animal feed and care totals more than $100,000 a year.  That is some shopping list!

Donate a meal to your favorite animal today.
