Support the Zoo

The San Antonio Zoo is dedicated to saving wildlife and wild places. In addition to providing a setting for quality family recreation and public education, we challenge ourselves to go beyond the care, exhibition, and breeding of exotic creatures, to be a comprehensive center for conservation and a leader in global efforts to preserve threatened wildlife.

The Annual Fund was created to provide unrestricted support for the on-going needs of the Zoo. These funds help offset the Zoo’s $10 million operating budget. Your support helps keep the San Antonio Zoo herd strong as it strives to provide:

  • CONSERVATION—all resources at our disposal for the conservation of the Earth's flora and fauna
  • EDUCATION—a diverse educational and high-quality recreational experience for all visitors
  • ANIMAL CARE—the highest standard of care for our animal and plant collections
