The NC Zoo Society is your bridge to more than a Zoo visit. We make you a partner in the Zoo’s global efforts to support:
and, we welcome you into a family that cares about nature
A visit to the North Carolina Zoo is a fun and affordable way for families to spend time together. Joining the Zoo Society makes these visits even more affordable by providing free admission each time that you visit—and by offering free or discounted admission to more than 150 partner zoos and aquariums across the country. Best of all, when you join, your membership dues provide valuable financial support to the North Carolina Zoo and to the conservation and animal welfare projects it conducts in North Carolina and around the world.
Your membership also strengthens your connection to the Zoo by providing a subscription to the Zoo Society's quarterly magazine, Alive.
The magazine provides you with in depth information about the Zoo's good works and insider information on upcoming events and programs. And, if if you choose to join one of our higher levels of membership, you can even bring one or more friends into the Zoo as guests each time you visit.
