Growing the Zoo

Help us Grow the Zoo

Since January 2023, seven American Red Wolves*, three Arabian Sand Cats*, 1 Brush-tailed Rat-kangaroo*, two Chimpanzees*, four Horned Puffins, 14 Virgin Island Boas*, and an assortment of lizards, tortoises, fish, beetles, bats, and other infants have arrived at the Zoo.

While we celebrated each of these births and hatchings, we were doubly joyful when parenthood blessed any of our endangered species (marked with asterisks in the list above). Each of these infants brought hope to the future of their mother species and affirmed the Zoo’s commitment to protecting wildlife and inspiring people to value animals and the environment. Each blessed event also reinforced our awareness of the ways the Zoo benefits North Carolina’s citizens—from its leadership role in conservation and education programming to its accessibility as a safe and wholesome family recreation facility.

As the non-profit organization that raises funds and engenders public support for the Zoo, we understand that many of these benefits depend on the generosity of people like you. You, our members and supporters, help sustain and broaden the Zoo’s reach and achievements.

Because the Zoo cannot continue to grow and prosper without people like you, we hope you will reaffirm the value you place on the Zoo’s program by making a donation to address the Zoo’s most pressing needs. By allowing the Zoo to invest your gift where it will do the most good, you can help ensure that the Zoo can continue protecting wildlife while inspiring and enchanting guests well into and beyond 2024.

Building Asia

The Zoo is preparing to dish some dirt in its quest to add an Asian and, later, an Australian continental region to the Park. This fall, backhoes and bulldozers will roll into the Zoo to lay the groundwork for building Phase I (Asia) of this expansion. When Asia is finished, the new 10-acre addition will be the wildest and most wonderful change that the Zoo has made in years.

American Red Wolf Conservation Center

As the last 260 or so American Red Wolves continue the struggle to carry on their species, the North Carolina Zoo and the Association of Zoos and Aquariums (AZA) have closed ranks to help! The American Red Wolf is the most endangered member of the Canid family group—the world’s wolves, foxes, dingos, and other dogs. And, it is the only Canid species known to have evolved and always lived exclusively within the boundaries of the continental United States.
