The Metro Richmond Zoo is privately owned and relies solely on admission, gift shop, and café sales for funding. We receive no funding from the local, state, or federal government.

Our visitors are critical to the Zoo’s success and growth.

Whether you are an old-timer or new-timer, thank you for your support, love, and dedication. We are always striving to provide an unforgettable and unique experience for you.

We have over 2,000 animals from around the world in our care. Each one is important to us. We care. Many of you share that same passion that we do. You care.

Help make a difference below. All contributions will be used for animal care.
