How a Gift Membership works:

Gift memberships may be purchased by phone, at the Zoo's front gate, or online. You will receive a gift note card to give to your recipient **.

Your recipient will redeem the gift note card at the Zoo's front gate to begin their new membership. Their membership will be valid for a full 12 months following the date they redeem the gift note card.


Stop by the Zoo at our member gate during our regular business hours and take the gift note card with you or call 501.661.7218 to pay by phone and we can mail it.

  3. Gift note cards are mailed to the address listed on your PayPal transaction form. If  you would like the gift note card sent to your recipient, please make update the shipping address to the recipient's address.  If you do not change the shipping address, it will default to your billing address.

Redeeming a gift note card is easy. Recipients should bring the gift note card the the Zoo within one year of purchase and before the expiration date that is clearly marked on the card. Recipients should complete the application on the back of the note card, come present their ID(s) at the Zoo, and receive a temporary card to start using their member benefits immediately.

  • Lost gift note cards are not refunded or replaced. The actual gift note card must be redeemed at the Zoo gates for a membership. Please treat the gift note cards like cash and keep them in a safe place.
