Make this #GivingTuesday

#GivingZOOday is partnering with #GivingTuesday, a day designed to unleash the power of generosity by encouraging people to do good. The Ellen Trout Zoo is participating with #GivingZOOday and other AZA organizations to help raise money for the hundreds of animals in our care and their counterparts in the wild. Your donation allows us to continue our conservation efforts, provide excellent care for our animals, and complete projects, such as updated habitats and animal enrichment.


This #GivingZOOday, we ask that you consider making a gift that will help us continue to provide care to the many animals at the Ellen Trout Zoo.

How does my donation help?

Your donation helps in several ways:

  • It allows you to partner with the us in our mission to inspire people to value and conserve our natural world. 

  • It helps to provide the very best care to the hundreds of animals that reside at the Ellen Trout Zoo, such as Binti, our baby Malayan tapir born this summer.

  • It helps create new programming so guests of all ages can connect with nature, including animal ambassadors, on-site animal programs, summer camps, and much more.

  • It helps to further our conservation and education efforts so that the next generation is empowered to continue the vital work of saving species from extinction. 

  • It helps our zoo grow locally while also helping wildlife globally, a win-win for all!
