Join us for the biggest online party of the year!
The in-person A Zoo Ado 2020 had to be canceled due to concerns over COVID-19.
However, we are planning the BEST virtual event St. Louis has ever seen.
Help us raise money for the Zoo
Proceeds from this year’s virtual A Zoo Ado will help the Zoo in all of our operations.
It also helps us recover from having to temporarily close to the public for three months due to COVID-19.
