Be a Bison’s Buddy – Sponsor the Bison Today!

Did you know that the Minnesota Zoo is collaborating with the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources to reintroduce bison to Minnesota’s state parks? A herd of genetically pure bison is being managed jointly at the Zoo and Blue Mounds State Park, giving visitors the opportunity to see bison with the same characteristics that have ensured their survival—and shaped the ecology of the Great Plains—for thousands of years. Learn more about the bison.

Please sponsor the bison at the Minnesota Zoo by making your gift to the Minnesota Zoo Foundation today. 

Your gift to the Minnesota Zoo Foundation will help us provide the resources necessary for the Zoo to maintain the best possible care for all of our amazing animals, while also continuing our conservation efforts here at home and around the world.

  • An animal sponsorship certificate.
  • A bison trading card with a photo and fun facts.
  • The satisfaction of knowing you are making a difference at the Minnesota Zoo!
