In August 2011 we officially launched a new program called Quarters for Conservation. With this program we are increasing our commitment to conservation, by stepping it up a notch to support exciting field conservation projects from around the globe.
Through the collection of quarters, the Zoo will provide funding for new and existing conservation projects. At each visit, part of the contribution to the conservation projects includes $0.25 of each general admission is allocated to the general funds of the Quarters for Conservation programs. Additionally, guests are encouraged to learn more about each program by visiting the 3 interactive spiral wishing wells near the front entrance. The guest can select the project of their choice that has inspired them the most and may deposit additional coins in the spiral wishing well to further make a difference by contributing to save the endangered species in the wild!
The Zoo has selected the following 3 worthy projects to devote all conservation fundraising efforts:
(October 1 - March 31)
9:00am - 4:00pm
(April 1 - September 30)
9:00am - 7:00pm
