Protecting What We Cherish

The North Carolina Zoo relies on critical support from the Zoo Society to fund programs that protect the health, well-being, and future of animals living inside the Park and in the wild. Every time you send a child to a Society camp or attend a VIP tour or buy an adoption package or, especially, donate to our annual fund, you become part of the community that protects the Zoo’s future and the future of the animals in its care.
Now, more than ever, the Zoo is relying on the Zoo Society to secure donations that will ensure the completion of the first stage of the most significant expansion plan in the Zoo’s history. This plan will add Asian, Australian, and South American habitats to the Zoo. Already, the Asian expansion is underway and will soon bring Tigers, Komodo Dragons, Red Pandas, and other wildlife under the Zoo’s care. These additions, too, will empower Zoo staff to go into the field to help protect these animals in the wild.
Please support the Zoo’s efforts to expand its protection of the wildlife, the wild places, and the wildly wonderful learning experiences that you and your family have come to cherish over the years.
