Looking For Ways to Support the Zoo?

The best way is to let us see you…

 Daily Admission & Season Pass Purchases

ZooWorld does not receive any government funding or assistance.  We rely on admissions, our gift shop and concession sales to cover our expenses.  The best way for the community to support our pursuit of conservation through the education of our guests is to simply come in and enjoy the zoo!


There are great volunteer opportunities at ZooWorld that fit any interest.  Assist zookeepers with educational encounters or plant a garden.  If you are interested in sharing your time with us,

please email:
