Hey All You Flappers and Fellas, Our Animals Need You! 

San Antonio Zoo continues to recover from the impact of the COVID-19 Outbreak. As we plan for our 38th Zoobilation Ball, we have made the audacious decision to move our gala virtual. We must stay flexible as the current climate evolves, and as the current climate evolves, and as COVID-19 continues to impact our communities.

ABOUT

Each year the Zoobilation Ball is THE primary fundraiser for the zoo’s $25 million operating budget, and YOUR support is more critical now than it has been in our entire 106-year history. 

The Zoo’s decrease in daily visitors and our extended closure has created a multimillion-dollar financial loss. Still, the animals rely on us daily and will continue to be cared for at the highest level. Your support of the 38th Annual Zoobilation Ball helps our zoo continue to fulfill our commitment of securing a future for wildlife.
