Donate today so our Red Panda can stay!

This year has been a very exciting year for the Zoo. 


We focused on introducing you, our guest, to new animals, some who just visited and some who now call the Zoo home.  We focused on building our education programs’ by working with area colleges and universities, expanding our hands on field work for our award-winning Conservation Discovery Corp teen program and creating more opportunities for our youngest Zoo enthusiasts to participate in programs with our educators and keepers.  The Zoo strives for excellence in animal husbandry and healthcare by participating in the artificial insemination program with Columbus Zoo and working with local vets to continue to use the latest technology to improve the health of our animals.


We know when you visit you may not know everything that is going on behind the scenes but it is because of your visit, your purchase at the gift shop and your ride on the carousel that we are able to continue to the work we love; making the Zoo a better place for our animals, our community and YOU!


Your donation today will keep us moving forward.

Opportunities, such as welcoming new animals and building new exhibits, creating a distance learning program for teachers and students alike, and adding state of the art medical technology in our clinic so we can take care of our animals with as little disturbance in their lives as possible


Your donation today will be matched dollar for dollar up to $25,000.

We are your Zoo, your children’s and grandchildren’s Zoo and Connecticut’s only Zoo.  Your support TODAY helps us continue to grow and improve for all generations to come.
