With no visitors — and no income — over the past 70 days, your donations from our first fundraising campaign sustained us into early May, ensuring our animals had the best of care.
Thankfully, the time has come to reopen, but we need your help once again. With an anticipated opening in early June, we enthusiastically invested in software, sanitizer, signage and the additional staff needed to make Gladys Porter Zoo a safe place for our guests, animals and employees. But thoughtful reopenings are not without cost. Our emergency funds are nearly exhausted, as is our budget for animal care.
We look forward to seeing you very, very soon. Please consider a small donation until then.

Purchase a Membership
Memberships are vital to the Zoo and provide necessary operating revenue, so we can care for the animals that call it home. Although we are not currently open to the public, we are looking forward to the day when we can open our gates once again. If you purchase a membership now to help get us through this difficult time, your membership will start from the date we re-open not the date of purchase. So, for example, if we reopen in May, your membership will start in May. Thank you for becoming a Zoo member.
