Minnesotans for an Amazing Zoo

The Minnesota Zoo offers something special for all Minnesotans.  It is:

  • An important community gathering place for all Minnesotans with more than 1.3 million guests annually.
  • A leading cultural institution.
  • One of our state’s most innovative environmental educational centers.
  • A state, national and international leader in wildlife conservation.
  • An economic engine for our community supporting more than 1700 jobs.

In short, the Minnesota Zoo is an amazing Zoo.

The Minnesota Zoo is also a state agency that relies on public funding to support its operations, facilities and programming.  Each year, the Zoo works with the Governor, legislators and other public officials to secure funding needed for the Zoo continue to be a world-class zoo.
