Critical Animal Care Fund

Earlier this year, the Saint Louis Zoo was closed to the public for three months due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Even though we are now open, we are still incurring significant expenses to care for our animals.

We are asking for your help as you consider year-end giving. Donations to the Critical Animal Care Fund will help offset ongoing operational costs associated with animal care at the Zoo.  No matter the size of gift you can make, please know that it is appreciated. Thank you for supporting the Saint Louis Zoo.  

As a special thank you for your gift of $50 or more, we are happy to send you a Saint Louis Zoo-branded umbrella featuring an African lion. For gifts of $100 or more, you will receive a ball cap with the same majestic big cat.

Ice Man Cookies

Our pinnipeds were treated to some personalized ice man “cookies” from their keepers to “sealebrate" the holidays. Each harbor seal and California sea lion posed for a picture with their presents, but some got a little too excited and just couldn’t wait to "dive" into their iced cookies.
