In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, the Zoo has temporarily suspended operations involving the public. Zookeepers, security officers, administrators, and other operational staff are reporting to work to ensure the well-being of the animals and the proper care of the facilities.

A message for our members:

Whether you’re a longtime member or brand new to our wild family, your membership means more than just unlimited visits to the Zoo. YOUR membership makes the exceptional possible at the North Carolina Zoo because it helps fund animal care, animal enrichment, veterinary needs, educational programs, and even Zoo’s staff salaries.

To thank you for your past support the the Zoo and its animals, the Society will extend your membership to compensate for the duration of the Zoo’s closure. If your renewal date rolls around anytime soon, though, we hope you will consider renewing anyway. Your renewal will provide much-needed support to the Zoo. We will still push back the expiration date on your current membership and will start your new membership after the current one expires. Click Here to Renew Your Membership

Take note, too, that zookeepers and staff are snapping photos and capturing videos for the Zoo’s FacebookTwitter, and Instagram pages. Check-in throughout the day to stay abreast of what’s happening to keep the animals and the Zoo safe. And, for the Kids—The Zoo’s Education Office is beginning a Facebook Live series that will be fun and educational, too. The Facebook Live series will air every Monday, Wednesday, and Friday at 10 a.m. on the Zoo’s Facebook PageThe Zoo will post videos of these programs on the Zoo’s YouTube channel for teachers, parents, lifelong learners, and curious kids to watch over and over.
