While the Zoo is closed to the public, we want to #BringTheStlZooToYou! We have asked our animal care team to share some photos and videos of our animals. Please keep in mind we will be operating under unusual circumstances and limited staff. Our first priority is the care and well-being of our animals, but when we can, we will be happy to add something fun and positive to your newsfeed!
Our staff remain dedicated to the animals in our care. Your support is vital to our future. Please consider making a contribution to our Critical Animal Care Fund.
The Saint Louis Zoo has announced Saturday, June 13 as its reopening date for the public. Read full info: stlzoo.org/guestnotice

Your donation will offset ongoing operational costs associated with the animal care at the Zoo.
It costs nearly $3,200 a week to provide fresh fish for our animals.
Our yellow-crowned night heron, Sassy, loves to “help” with diet prep to make sure we divide the fish properly. She likes to come in from her home at the Cypress Swamp in the 1904 Flight Cage to help keepers. She also just happens to be in nesting mode and likes to carry sticks with her from time to time as you can see. #BringTheStlZooToYou
