#GivingZOOday a global day of giving back solely dedicated to zoos and aquariums. With the holiday shopping season upon us, we hope you will support your Little Rock Zoo and the important conservation work being done to protect animals and their habitats. 

Where does my donation go?

Your generous donation goes directly to the Arkansas Zoological Foundation, the 501 c (3) nonprofit organization working to grow and develop the Little Rock Zoo. Private/public partnerships between the City of Little Rock and individual donors can help make our Zoo great for everyone to enjoy.

How does my donation help?

Your donation helps in several ways:

  • By providing the very best care to the hundreds of animals that reside at the Little Rock Zoo such as Kasih, our baby orangutan born in 2019.
  • By creating new and exciting programming so visitors of all ages can connect with nature, including animal ambassadors, on-site animal programs, classes for kids and families, and much, much more.
  • By furthering our conservation and education efforts so that the next generation is empowered to continue the vital work of saving species from extinction. 
  • By helping our zoo grow locally while also helping wildlife globally, a win-win for all!
