How a Gift Certificate works:

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

Your recipient will redeem the certificate 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 certificate.


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


  1. Use the chart below to purchase a gift certificate online**.
  2. Purchases are subject to a $3.00 online processing fee.
  3. Select the level membership you would like to purchase as a gift.
  4. Certificates are mailed to the address on your form. Complete the information, making sure to UPDATE the shipping address on your order form if you would like it mailed directly to your gift recipient. If you do not change the shipping address, it will default to your billing address.

** Please plan ahead if you are ordering by PHONE OR ONLINE. Allow 7-10 days to receive the gift certificate. Please call if you, or your recipient, have not received your gift certificate within 10 days of purchase. Notify recipients that they may be receiving a letter, as certificates may get thrown away unopened.


Redeeming a certificate is easy. Recipients come by the Zoo in person with the gift certificate within one year of purchase. An expiration date will be clearly marked on the gift certificate. Recipients complete the application on the back of the certificate, show their ID and receive a temporary card to start using their member benefits immediately.

  • Expired certificates are not accepted. Please redeem the certificate before it expires, even if renewing a current membership that has not yet expired. Please call if you have questions.
  • Lost certificates are not refunded or replaced. The actual certificate must be redeemed at the Zoo gates for a membership. Please treat the certificates like cash and keep them in a safe place.

 Questions? Please call our membership office at 501.661.7218 before you purchase.
