Looking for a unique gift?
You can support the animals you love at the Minnesota Zoo!
Animal Sponsorships are still available while the Minnesota Zoo and Foundation are closed to keep people and animals safe at this time. It’s a great way to support the zoo keepers caring for our more than 4,500 diverse creatures as well as provide for the diverse needs of your favorite animals.
With your sponsorship you will receive a digital certificate and fact sheet, emailed directly to you, within 2-3 business days. Once the Zoo reopens and we are back at our offices your plush will be mailed to your designee.
Thank you for your gift to the Minnesota Zoo Foundation which supports the Minnesota Zoo’s animals, conservation programs and educations programs. We look forward to seeing you at the Zoo again soon. In the meantime, check out the Zoo’s online Learning Corner or follow us on social media.
