Support the Mission

We Need You

During these challenging times, our responsibilities and stewardship to the Zoo’s creatures large and small must continue. We have been working hard to identify alternative ways to cover the essential expenses necessary to care for the 30,000-plus animals that call Omaha’s Zoo home. We need YOU, our loyal supporters, now more than ever.

Emergency Support Fund

During these challenging and unprecedented times, Omaha’s Zoo remains committed, as we always have, in our mission to inspire, educate and engage people to serve as lifelong stewards for animals, their habitats and their conservation. A gift to our Emergency Support Fund will ensure the Zoo continues its vital mission of animal care and conservation now and in the future.

Become a Zoo Parent

Here at Omaha's Henry Doorly Zoo and Aquarium, we think "adopting an animal" just doesn't do justice to the impact your support actually provides. That's why we're giving you a better title: ZooMama or ZooDaddy. After all, your support is helping us provide the best care possible for our animals and to help fund wildlife conservation efforts here and all over the world. That's big - and that's important!
