Support the Zoo



Because Oakland Zoo is a non-profit, we rely on your donations to provide year-round financial support to ensure the health and well-being of all the animals at the Zoo as well as education and outreach, conservation and animal welfare programs.

When you make a donation of $1,000 or greater you will automatically be enrolled in our Friends of the Wild membership program. To learn more about Friends of the Wild click here. Remember, every donation, whether big or small, makes a huge difference here at your Zoo.

If you would like to make a memorial or tribute gift, please contact us at (510) 632-9525 ext 154 or ccorona@oaklandzoo.org
