Your Support Makes a Difference

When you help the Jackson Zoo, you are helping the staff in their efforts to provide the most up-to-date and highest quality care for the amazing creatures that live in the zoo. The Jackson Zoo continues its commitment to providing excellent quality recreational and educational experiences dedicated to wildlife care and conservation.

Although our animal care staff follows all accredited standards for health and safety for our animals, there are ALWAYS items that can make their jobs easier, and add a little something special to the exhibits. More details can be found on the ENRICHMENT PAGE.
